Holiday Home Improvement

The weather isn’t the only reason why the holiday’s may be a good time for you to upgrade your fence. After the chaos concludes, our favorite season begins in the New Year. That’s right, tax season! According to the IRS, tax season officially commences January 21st for the 2018 year. Depending on how your fence is used, you could be eligible to have your fence listed as a deductible this tax season. There are different rules that the IRS uses to establish the deductibility of a fence. If your fence is used as a business expense then deduction is straightforward, but if used as a personal expense, deductibility can be a little more complicated.

Business Expense

Upgrading your fence as a part of a business expense is a good way to pay it back to yourself and your business this tax season. The IRS allows you to deduct expenses that are related to running a business. For instance, if having an up-to-date fence is necessary to the foundation of the business such as a kennel, day care, or rental property, then you may be able to itemize this deduction on your taxes. The entire cost of the fence, or related labor, is required to be deducted over the course of several tax years.

Personal Expense

Although individuals can’t deduct a fence as a personal expense, the IRS allows an addition of a fence to be added to the tax basis of the property when sold. Because it is considered an improvement it still does provide some tax benefit. It can help reduce the amount of taxes required to pay when it comes to sell your home at a profit. The more basis your home has the greater the profit you’ll get when it comes time to sell your home.
