Are Zoo Passes Tax Deductible?

Zoo Memberships are often tax deductible. We recently traveled to Phoenix, Arizona. They have a well thought out zoo with camel rides and a monkey exhibit that you can walk into.

While there we decide to purchase a zoo pass. It's already $35 each to get into the zoo. A pass for the two of us was just $99. In this case, it's tax deductible too. (Check with your accountant to be safe.) And the zoo has reciprocal privileges at other zoos all over the US.

If you visit the Phoenix Zoo, skip the outside lines, head to the membership kiosk or walk across the bridge and you will see the membership office on the right. Pop inside and purchase your zoo pass. The animals will thank you :)
