Why is a finished basement considered a capital improvement?
Also, finishing your basement may be considered a capital improvement by the IRS for tax purposes. This allows you to add the cost to your home’s purchase price—aka your home’s basis. Boosting your home’s basis is valuable because it can reduce your profit, or capital gain, when you sell the home, which may decrease your taxes.
