Is Foundation Repair Tax Deductible?
Generally speaking, while home upgrades may be tax-deductible, repairs usually are not, which means you won’t be able to deduct the cost of your foundation repair from your taxes. The reasoning behind this is that home upgrades such as building a deck, installing energy-efficient windows, or adding solar panels to your roof tend to increase the value of a home, whereas making necessary repairs is simply a measure to maintain the home’s current value.
However, in some instances, foundation repair may be tax-deductible. For example, if you run a business out of your home and use a portion of your home as an office exclusively for the business, you may qualify for a home office deduction. In such cases, though, since the office comprises only a portion of your home, say 20 percent, you would only be able to deduct 20 percent of the overall cost of foundation repair. Similarly, if you rent out a portion of your home, you may be allowed to deduct a portion of the foundation repair cost.
