Can I Write Off My Kitchen Remodel?

Can I Write Off My Kitchen Remodel?Are you planning a kitchen remodel and hoping that it might qualify as a write-off when it comes time to file your taxes? You might want to temper those expectations a bit. It’s a little more complicated than your entire kitchen remodel being tax-deductible. In fact, home improvements for any home that serves as your primary residence typically aren’t tax-deductible. So, you might be wondering: “When can I write off my kitchen remodel?”

There are certain situations, projects, and investments that can help you earn tax credits. For example:

Energy-Efficient Upgrades

If you’re updating your kitchen by having energy-efficient equipment installed to enhance it, you may be eligible for tax credits. This equipment can include solar panels, solar water heaters, small wind turbines, or fuel cell hardware—though fuel cell hardware can be subject to limitations.

Kitchen Upgrades for Medical Purposes

Certain projects that are completed for medical reasons can be written off when it comes time to file your taxes. These projects need to be related to the treatment, mitigation, or prevention of a disease. At the same time, these expenses only qualify as tax-deductible if they are paid out of pocket and not reimbursed by your health insurance.

Working From Home, Renting Out Your Home & Other Tax Breaks

There are other cases where your kitchen remodel can qualify as a tax write-off. If you or someone in your residence works from home in a home office, upgrades related to that space may qualify. If you rent out your home, you may also be able to deduct the cost of a project from your rental income. Of course, there are other projects that may be written off your taxes, but it can be on a case-by-case basis. If you’re not sure whether or not your kitchen remodel qualifies for any tax write-offs or tax credits, speak with a professional to find out.
