    If you haven't found an attorney yet, let me know. My sister works for a Law firm in Herndon and they can help you out.

    We ended up using H&R Block again this year. WE overheard someone writing off a whole house humifider, but that must be if they are selling or is rental property? I thought you could not write off things like repairs/decks/basements etc...

    I believe that is accurate. I don't even think you can "write off" capital improvements to a rental property, though. I think you have to depreciate the cost over the life of the unit (something like 10-15 years). It's almost not worth it.

    If you used a home equity loan to pay for the humidifier, though, you could write off the interest on the loan.
