Daycare and Taxes>Replaced Fence on Side of Property

We had to replace 80 ft of fencing on the side of our property. 50 ft of the fence is in the yard were the kids play. Is this part of the entire home repairs deduction?

Also, we had problems with the installation and had to hire another person to fix the job the first installer did. Can we use both charges?

Thanks,

Jim

Thanks Tom,

We don't have any children, so I'm taking the 100% on the 50 ft and the percentage on the remaining 30 ft.
