Prime Minister Stephen Harper unveiled his first big-ticket promise of the campaign – a permanent tax credit for home renovations.
Taxpayers would be able to claim up to 15% of the cost of permanent “substantial” renovations to homes, condos and cottages. The tax credit would apply to renovation costs between $1,000 and $5,000, allowing a taxpayer to get back up to $750 a year.
Is this a good idea? Would you support this?
