Where do I enter Home Repairs and Home Improvements?

Nowhere. repairs and improvements to your primary residence or 2nd home are not deductible. However, property improvements add to the cost basis of your house. But you don't report those anywhere. Those costs won't matter until the year one of three things happens in your life.

1) You sell the house
2) You convert the property to a rental
3) You die.

@vjr62 repairs are *NEVER* deductible under any scenario or in any circumstances on your primary residence or 2nd home. There are no exceptions.

This is an old post.  And some there are specific rules re improvements for medical reasons. One has to factor in how much the value of the property has increased as a result of say, putting in a handicap ramp.
