Pets are expensive. fortunately if your pet generates an income, you can take pet-related expenses off on your taxes. Of course the key is to make sure your pet actually works.

If your cat works in a pest-control, that’s a tax write-off for its food and health care. If you make money posting funny cat videos on the Internet, that’s another way to legally write off pet expenses from your taxes.
