Are you trying to buy a house and want to get a mortgage? The housing market has recovered (and then some) in many areas of the country, which means prices and mortgage amounts are rising. But that also means that you may be tempted to take out an adjustable-rate mortgage to deal with the initial high price of the home. ARMs can be helpful in certain circumstances because you can either pay a lower amount at first and save money, or pay a higher amount at first and pay off more principal.

If you help out an animal shelter or animal rescue or foster organization that the Internal Revenue service (IRS) recognizes as a 501(3)(c) charity, you may qualify for a tax break. Aside from volunteering your time, you may be able to deduct on your federal income tax return certain unreimbursed expenses that you incur in supporting a nonprofit pet organization. Allowable Deductions Although you can't deduct expenses for the care of dogs, cats, or other animals that you rescue on your own, involvement with a qualified nonprofit group allows you to deduct charitable contributions you make to help pay for pet food, cat litter, dog leashes, pet crates, pet cleaning supplies, and veterinary bills.
