We have already dealt with building renovations for 2014 more than once, but now it is precisely to list all the tax benefits provided the Revenue Agency, through a special guide published directly on the official website.
Building renovations and tax deductions: a brief summary
The combination of building renovations and tax deductions has its roots in fairly recent times: it is in fact governed by Article 16-bis of Presidential Decree 917/86 (Consolidated income tax law). The facility was made permanent with Law Decree no. 201/2011 and included among the deductible charges from the Irpef. The matter has been updated several times over the years, and the most recent change is precisely the one provided for by the latest Stability Law.
