    5. Dog-ductions, part 2

    You think it's hard to find good help? Tell it to the IRS. Even the CPA source for this one wished to remain anonymous.:

    "A landscaper who was under audit with the IRS had deducted the expense of their dog because he would pull the wagon on landscaping jobs. They felt he was out there helping. He may have been listed as an independent contractor."

    He may have gotten away with it if he had told them it was a guard dog.
