Please Read Sasha's Important Tip of the Week

Hi to all my pals. Mommy gets a newsletter from the ASPCA and she wanted to pass this on to all of my buddy's and your Moms and Dads. I don't get it but it seems pretty important. I mean Mommy explained that it might help her and Daddy paying the Vet bills for me and stuff. I am hoping that means more money for treats. That is so much a good thing. Its worth checking out anyway. Maybe we can make a difference together.
"Dear Animal Advocates, Introduced by Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, H.R. 3501—known as the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (“HAPPY”) Act—is a federal bill that would reward responsible pet parents by allowing them to keep more money in their pockets come tax time. We all want to give our animal companions the best care we possibly can, but it seems that pet care costs are always on the rise—and these days, it’s harder than ever to stretch the family budget. That’s why the ASPCA supports H.R. 3501, which would amend U.S. tax code to allow qualifying pet care expenses, including veterinary care, to be tax-deductible. This means that when you prepare your income taxes, money you spent on pet care that year would count as non-taxable income—and you can deduct up to $3,500 per year! Please help us support the HAPPY Act, H.R. 3501.
licks and sniffs, Sasha

Sasha, you have some really good information here. I hope this passes, it will help insure that pets get proper medical care. It definitely help families with the expenses.
You are such a smart girl.

Hugs and purrs,
Judy and Miss Cindi

WOW! That would make a Relentlessly Huge difference around here since I think if I even walk past the V-E-T office it costs a gazillion dollars.

Hey there Cutie-Pie!
Wish we had something like that here?...oh dear!
Lots of licks

Wooos! It would be nice as Mom whines about my medicine costing more than $100 per month!and that does not include extras, like vet visits or blood work ups. I think I would like to skip those, but Mom makes me. Let us hope they listen to us!

We will certainly support this bill, we will probably pass over that cap this year, but Dad would be very happy if he could add this deduction to our forms.


Woos, the OP Pack

Thanks Sasha, for letting us know about this. You are very informed, I'd say! And always, a sweetie!

Thanks Sasha, you smart little dog!

I think vet bills should be tax-deductible. This would be wonderful! Will share about this on my Friday post "Things I Learned This Week" at www.zemeks.blogspot.com with a link back here.

I'm telling Mom to do that Right Now! 'Cause, well, like Mango, when TaiChi drives by the vet's office, it costs about $200. (And don't even ASK how much it costs every time she always goes in the place!)

Hi Sasha,

That sounds such good news for your pawrents. Hope there would be something like that where we are. We are quite a big family and that would help mommy a lot.
Good luck and hope that pushes through for you there. =)

JacksDad said...

Thank you for letting us know about the legislation. Every penny helps!

Lillian Robinson said...

Wow! Mom could get the maximum deduction every year! I know the stupid cats count, but do the horses and goats count too? They are Mom's pets... not part of the family, like me! Mom has to pay extra for the farm calls. (That's like the human doctors' house calls.) I guess the horses and goats don't like to ride in the car.


Mom would have commented too, but her eyes are old and she can't hardly read the letters on the dark background. She said it's pretty, though.

Lillian Robinson said...

Mom said to let your mom know she already sent her letter.

I don't know WHAT state you are in, but here in California, they are thinking about doing the exact OPPOSITE! Our governor wants to put an EXTRA tax on all vet care!

I like YOUR guy's bill a LOT better! OC
