Default Remodel Tax Question - How To Enter In MMK

We did a remodel project of my daycare space that is 100% for business. I assume I take all receipts for that and add them together for a grand total, right? Then when I enter into MMK what would I put that under? Also my husband and I did all the work so that can go under our time worked after hours correct?

We also removed some trees and layed down sod in our backyard. I do have a daycare outside space that is 100% that we didn't work on but we do use this space ocasionally for the daycare. Would all that work be T/S or does it not count if we don't use it all the time? (We have a fence seperating the spaces). If I can count it would it go under repairs or something else?

Thanks so much for your help!

I would like to know about this also. I'm pretty sure you can't claim 100% of the remodel even if it was 100% business use because it ups the value of the property.

Interesting, hopefully we'll hear soon. My remodel was converting a living room/dining room into a daycare space with a bathroom. (incase it matters on if I can claim all of it or not I wanted to specify)

Add up all the costs of the remodeling costs and depreciate it over 39 years. Since you are using the area 100% for your business, depreciate 100% of the cost. You can also count all of the hours you and your husband worked on this remodeling project.

Apply your T/S% to the cost of removal of the trees and the sod because you are using the area both for business and personal purposes. Claim both costs as a repair/maintenance.
