Extension of the RénoVert Tax Credit
The period of eligibility for the RénoVert tax credit has been extended to March 31, 2018, for all recognized work other than the construction, renovation, modification or rebuilding of a system for the discharge, collection and disposal of waste water, toilet effluents or grey water in accordance with the requirements set out in the Regulation respecting waste water disposal systems for isolated dwellings.
This refundable tax credit has been introduced on a temporary basis to encourage individuals to invest in recognized eco-friendly home renovation work that has a positive environmental impact or improves their dwelling's energy efficiency.
You can claim the credit if you have recognized eco-friendly home renovation work done to a dwelling you own or co-own that is your principal residence or a winterized cottage that you normally occupy. The initial construction of the dwelling must have been completed before January 1, 2016, and the dwelling must be one of the following:
- a single-family home;
- a permanently installed prefabricated house or mobile home;
- an apartment in a building held in divided co-ownership (condominium);
- a dwelling in a residential duplex or triplex;
- a winterized cottage that you normally occupy.
The renovation work must have been done by a qualified contractor under a contract entered into after March 17, 2016, and before April 1, 2017.
