On November 5, the 2020 Ontario Budget addressed the well-being of seniors. The Province committed to creating a Seniors’ Home Safety Tax Credit. This fully refundable credit for the 2021 tax year aims to keep seniors safe, create jobs, and generate economic activity. The credit will be worth 25% of up to $10,000 in expenses for a senior’s principal residence. Eligible expenses include the purchase and installation of devices like grab bars, wheelchair ramps, stair lifts, and elevators. Renovations to permit first floor occupancy or a secondary suite are also eligible.
