Are capital expenses for renovation tax deductable?
(updated on Friday, August 29th 2008)
Our Experts Answer:The expenses you are referring to are more capital in nature and are therefore not tax deductible. Those costs will be capitalised, which means they will be added to the value of the house and then depreciated at the appropriate rates. Until a property is available to be rented, none of the costs are tax deductible.
