Home Renovation Tax Credit for Canadians (HRTC)

Do you live in Canada? Are you planning on doing some home renovations? Do you want a break on your 2009 taxes?

If you answered yes to these three questions, I have a solution for you.

The Government of Canada in their efforts to thwart the plummeting economy has given you, the taxpayer, the opportunity to do those home renovation products you may have wanted to put off. The government will give you 15% back on the money you spent doing home improvements in the 2009 tax period.

Of course there are rules. (What government program doesn't?) You must spend over $1000 for the program to kick in and up to a maximum of $10000 giving you a difference of $9000.

Take 15% of $9000 and that gives you a $1350 tax credit on your 2009 taxes.

That's it in a nutshell, follow the link for more information.
