  • LOL Wouldn't that be great? Maybe I could claim my dog as an employee because he "works" as a guard dog--barks at anything and anyone that moves in the yard--leaves, squirrels, stray cats....

  • They are actually trying to have a bill passed about that! Well, that you can write off vet bills I believe?? Maybe someone else has a link to the "story". I'll see if I can find it.

  • Here is the discussion that was on the "Dog Lovers" group last month (it also include the link)...

  • That would be very interesting if that bill passed. I worked for an accountant previously and people used to try to get him to write off pet expenses all of the time, like large vet bills and doggie daycare expenses. Of course, he could not do it at the time, but maybe that will change.
