    As we are aware that if you sell property, the amount you spend in renovation of your house is exempt from capital gains tax. I would like to know that what expenditures incurred from capital gains money is exempted? E.g payments made to Labour, raw materials bought like bricks, cement, iron rods, paint, window, doors, water pipes, metal works, plumbing, electrification and painting etc., which of these are covered?

    All types of expenses incurred in renovation of the house would be considered.

    Labor expenses, material expense, water expense, door expense etc - each and every expense would be considered.

    However, you should have bills for all these expenses.
