Clean Air = Cash!

If you have tested your home for radon you may be able to claim the cost of the radon test on your income tax. In order to qualify, you must also qualify for "work-space-in-the-home expenses" or be self-employed.

The Canadian Revenue Agency has confirmed that an employee (salaried and commission) may deduct a portion of the cost for radon testing (for example, a radon test kit or the services of a radon measurement professional) as a work-space-in-the-home expense, as such costs are incurred for the maintenance of the home, and this same inclusion is extended to a self-employed individual.
