How do I claim renovation costs for a basement I built in 2017 which I then I rented in 2017? I'm not sure if it's an expense or an asset/depreciation.

Renovation costs for a basement cannot be claimed as an expense, but must be added as an asset to be depreciated.

In the rental section of Turbotax, add this renovation as an asset.
