Saving receipts for home improvement costs so I can adjust cost basis when I sell. Ten years ago, replaced washer & dryer with new Amana washer & dryer. (Assuming if I fixed the old ones, that would be maintenance so cost wouldn't count, but getting nice new ones would count as capital improvements.)

This month, replaced Amana with Maytag Neptune. My question: do the Amana machines still count, or should I subtract them from my running capital improvements total?

Thanks in advance,
