How do I claim the Saskatchewan Home Renovation Tax Credit?

SOLVEDby TurboTax18Updated March 01, 2022

The nonrefundable Saskatchewan Home Renovation Tax Credit (HRTC) lets homeowners claim between $1,000 and $12,000 in eligible renovation expenses for tax year 2021. The $1,000 base amount is subtracted from your claim.

The HRTC can be split between you, your spouse/common-law partner, and your children under 18, but the total amount claimed can’t be more than $12,000.

If you earn rental or business income from part of your home, you can only claim the expenses incurred for personal-use areas. Any renovation expenses for common areas must be divided between personal use and income-earning use, so that you only claim the personal-use amount on your return.

To support your claim, you’ll need a receipt or invoice for each eligible expense. You don’t need to submit these with your return, but keep them on hand in case the CRA asks for documentation. 

For more information, visit the CRA’s Saskatchewan Home Renovation Expenses webpage.

You may be eligible for the Saskatchewan HRTC if:

  • You had renovations done to a home that you own (alone or with someone else)
  • You, your spouse/common-law partner, or your children under 18 lived in the home during its renovations

Eligible expenses include the cost of:

  • Labour and professional services
  • Building materials
  • Fixtures
  • Equipment rentals
  • Permits

For tax year 2021, the expenses must be for renovations that were: 

  • Made to your principal residence in Saskatchewan
  • Incurred between October 1, 2020, and December 31, 2021
  • Largely completed by the end of 2021
  • Long-lasting and integral

For a longer list of eligible and ineligible expenses, visit the Government of Saskatchewan’s Home Renovation Tax Credit webpage.
