My husband and I are moving our home from Alaska to Texas for his new employer. We have a few pets that need to be transported including a couple of horses and three dogs. Can we deduct these costs from our income tax return?

You can only deduct moving expenses for your family, which does not include horses. Dogs and cats most likely will be in your car .For 2012, the deducible expense for driving your car is 23 cents per mile (24 cents for 20) If the pets are in a separate vehicle being towed, this cost isnot deductible, unless they are dogs used for medical assistance.
