So now that tax time is coming to an end, and of course I am still not finished with mine, I was wondering something. Since pigs are still considered livestock in most places, does that mean that I can claim their feed, enclosures, blankets, etc… as farm expenses? My guess is that knowing our government they will say no because my pigs are pets. so why is it that if things work to our benefit, it isn’t ok but if it works to theirs than it is?

My problem is, we have to fight tooth and nail in order to convince our local government to allow pigs in┬áresidential areas because they are “Still considered Swine” and then we have to fight again if we want to claim them as swine on our taxes. It’s kinda funny to me how people ( us included) try to bend every rule that we can when it benefits us.

I guess since I am not a fan of audits, I should stay clear of this one.
