Tax Deductible Service Dog Stuff

A few days ago, I posted an article written by my friend and accountant, Traci McGowan, about how your service dog might be tax deductible.

What service dog-related expenses can be deductible?  Pretty much all of them, including:
  • dog food
  • treats
  • toys
  • collars
  • leashes
  • vests
  • harnesses
  • crate
  • food/water dishes
  • doggie bed
  • vet bills
  • mileage when you drive your service dog to the vet
  • flea, tick and heart worm prevention
  • professional groomer
  • brush, comb, shampoo, nail clippers, other grooming supplies
  • dog walker (or, in Isaac's case, runner)
  • dog sitter (which I doubt is needed often for a service dog, but if it is needed, it would be deductible)
  • boarding (also probably not needed much)
  • doggie daycare (also probably not needed much)
  • someone to scoop the poop in your yard
  • pooper scooper and poop bags (if you scoop your own yard and buy bags for that purpose - I just use plastic grocery sacks)
So make sure you save all those receipts!
