Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

In 2016 I paid just under $35000 for my motor on my motor home and it is my only residence. Can I claim any of it for taxes?

The diesel engine went out and I had to get a complete rebuilt one for my motorhome.  I used investment money to pay what the extended warranty didn't cover.  Can any of the out of pocket cost be used as deductible since it is my only residence?

If this qualifies as "sudden and unexpected", you might qualify for a casualty and theft loss deduction.

If this is due to normal wear and tear, then it would not be deductible.
