Whoa.......what year(s) was that?

It was on my TAXCUT software...and I'm thinking it was around 2002 or 2003. I looked all over for an indepth explanation...but it seemed to be just what it said........

Right now, I'm just praying that Mitch Daniels isn't reading this. He rarely misses a chance to raise taxes in Imdiana.
While I could make a good argument otherwise, we'll never see dogs considered a necessity. They're a luxury, and as such won't be tax deductible.

Never thought about them being tax deductible, but I've often wished I could add Mad to my company benefits package to get a break on her meds.

They're thinking of implementing a veterinary tax surcharge here in California. It would put care way over budget for many people.
