The Green Bonus, the tax deduction provided for home garden renovation work, was also confirmed for 2023 and 2024. This article explains the rules and procedures for obtaining it, who is entitled to it and for which jobs. The Green Bonus was introduced for the first time with the 2018 budget law to encourage interventions to enhance greenery through the arrangement of private gardens and terraces.

Also for 2023, the deduction envisaged for the green bonus is equal to 36% on the expenses incurred for the renovation of private green spaces. The maximum spending amount is €5,000 per property unit. On an expense of €5,000, the tax deduction will therefore be €1,800 which is divided into 10 annual installments.
