Here are some tax deduction ideas: Pet bedding; Boarding Fees; Collars, tags, dog coats; Food (not your pet food); Toys ,especially if sent home with pet; Medical Procedures - scheduled or emergency, supplies, creams and sprays; Mileage $.14 cents/mile - trips that support MHC or fostering. These items (with exception of monetary donations) are deducted on Schedule A Itemized Deductions. If total deductions are over $500, complete Form 8283 Non-cash Charitable Contributions. Monetary donations are deducted on Schedule A. Deductions need written evidence, receipt, or letter of acknowledgement. For questions, visit www.irs.gov or a tax adviser.
