Qualifying Expenditures 

  • Must be incurred during the eligible period and supported by receipts which clearly
    identify:

    • The vendor/contractor.
    • The date of which the goods/services were purchased and/or provided.
    • A description of the work performed and the address where the work was performed.
    • The amount paid.
  • Expenditures do not qualify if the goods or services are provided by a person with whom
    the taxpayer is not dealing at arm’s length (i.e. a close relative) unless that person is
    registered to collect GST/PST.

Eligible Expenses for the Tax Credit

Eligible goods or services can be claimed for the tax credit during the period in which the costs were incurred.

  • For example, costs incurred with having a roof shingled in 2021 must be claimed on the taxpayer’s 2021 tax return and can’t be resubmitted again for the 2022 tax year.
  • The total amount of eligible expenses being claimed each year under the Saskatchewan Home Renovation Tax Credit must be between $1,000 and the annual limit.
  • Only renovations undertaken to a homeowner’s primary residence will be eligible for the Saskatchewan Home Renovation Tax Credit.
  • Either spouse in a married or common-law couple, residing at the same address may claim the credit; or they may divide eligible home renovation expenses between themselves in claiming the tax credit, up to the maximum total annual amount per residence.
  • Eligible expenditures for condominiums and co-operative housing corporations include the individual’s share of the cost of renovating common areas, in addition to costs to renovate the unit.
