Hiring Pregnant Women: A Tax Recruiter’s Inside Look

Kat Jennings - Tax Recruiter Inside Look At Hiring Pregnant Women

For more than three decades, I have worked with organizations which have interviewed and hired pregnant women. I have also worked with companies who quietly declined to hire women who are pregnant but gave other reasons for not hiring them. As an executive search professional, who has placed thousands of tax professionals, you often see behind the scenes how pregnant women are interviewed and handled. This post discusses my personal experience and observations in how companies handled pregnant women in the field of tax.

As an expert in executive tax search with a long list of clients, I have experienced a wide range of scenarios in the hiring process. What is always interesting to me is the hiring of pregnant women. For the record, my three sons are 25, 25, 26 so my child bearing years are behind me. However, my tax executive search practice was so busy when I had my sons there was no way I would stop working. I took two weeks off after my first son and one month after my identical twins. I was on the phone helping clients even from my hospital bed. It is in my DNA to work hard and after years of raising three sons, I am still a hard driving producer of work for clients searching for tax expertise. Some people are born out of the womb with incredible drive.

IRS Rules On Deducting Business Expenses

IRS Rules On Deducting Business Expenses

Business expenses are the cost of carrying on a trade or business. These expenses are usually deductible if the business operates to make a profit.

What Can I Deduct?

To be deductible, a business expense must be both ordinary and necessary. An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your trade or business. A necessary expense is one that is helpful and appropriate for your trade or business. An expense does not have to be indispensable to be considered necessary.

It is important to separate business expenses from the following expenses:

  • The expenses used to figure the cost of goods sold,
  • Capital Expenses,
  • and Personal Expenses.
Cost Of Goods Sold

If your business manufactures products or purchases them for resale, you generally must value inventory at the beginning and end of each tax year to determine your cost of goods sold unless you are a small business taxpayer (defined below). Some of your expenses may be included in figuring the cost of goods sold. The cost of goods sold is deducted from your gross receipts to figure your gross profit for the year. If you include an expense in the cost of goods sold, you cannot deduct it again as a business expense.
