Green bonus 2024: how the deduction for gardens and terraces works

The green bonus is the tax break that allows maintenance work to be carried out on terraces and gardens.
The incentive comes to life for the first time with the budget law for 2018, and has been extended (with the 2022 budget law, law 234 of 2021, article 1, paragraph 37).
The extension allows the "green" accommodation costs incurred until 31 December 2024 to be deducted.
The 2024 green bonus is part of the building concession package extended without structural changes.
However, unlike the furniture bonus, which is linked to having carried out renovation work, the green bonus is independent.
This tax relief allows you to deduct the expenses incurred for the arrangement of green areas, but not all of them are included, in fact those for ordinary maintenance are not included among the eligible expenses.
Here are the expenses you get from the 2024 green bonus deduction.
