If your home has been renovated for a physical hardship, you may get a tax credit

AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The AccessAble Home Tax Credit is a Maine income tax credit that reimburses modifications that make homes more accessible for a person with a physical disability or hardship living there.

Maybe you've added a ramp to the home of your elderly parent; a railing to grab onto; or just fixed flooring to get rid of any tripping hazards, you could be eligible for up to $9,000 in a tax credit.

The credit is only available to applicants with an annual income of $55,000 or less. Modifications have to improve accessibility for the person who lives in the home, and have to meet federal standards and comply with building codes.
