Can you claim home improvements on taxes?

Only home improvements that are done on rental properties (income properties) can be claimed on tax statements as deductions to income earned on those rental properties for the tax year in which the expenses for those improvements are paid.

Some home improvements done to your primary residence may be deducted from your taxable income if they meet energy-efficient criteria established by the IRS for those deductions. Contact your local tax accountant for details.
