Seniors Home Safety Tax Credit 2021

The Seniors’ Home Safety Tax Credit for 2021 is a refundable personal income tax credit that can be claimed by people who turn 65 by the end of 2021 or those who live with a senior relative. It returns 25 per cent of up to $10,000 in eligible expenses (to a maximum of $2,500) for renovations to a senior’s principal residence in Ontario. Examples of eligible expenses include grab bars, wheelchair ramps, stair lifts, and renovations to move a senior to the first floor of a home.
