STOCKHOLM, Sweden - You can't deflate your taxes by inflating your chest, a Swedish stripper learned after a three-year legal battle to deduct the cost of her breast implants from her income taxes. 

An appeals court in Stockholm sided with the latter and ruled the 25-year-old woman's 26,000 kronor (US $3,000) breast enhancement surgery could not be deducted from her 1998 income taxes. The woman, whose name was not released, claimed the 'size and shape' of her breasts were crucial to her income as a stripper. She listed the cost of the surgery as a business expense and sued the tax authorities when they rejected her deduction...

Should strippers be allowed to claim their breast implants as a business expense and get a tax deduction for them?

Umm... I'm not sure. It wasn't needed, only desired. But I'm not sure.

She couldv'e easily gotten a better job anyways with out them.

The breast implants were not necessary, she just hoped to do better as a stripper with them. I don't think it could have been considered as a business expense, since she didn't NEED them. It's like having a brightly decorated shop window. Maybe more people will come into your store but no matter what color your window is you will still have customers

If they were absolutely necasary I'd say yes, but they aren't. You can do just fine without implants. In fact I don't like implants. I'd rather see a gal with a smaller real rack then huge wads of silicone. Abnormaly huge t1ts just aren't a turn on for me.

If she got a bigger raise out of bigger boobs then the op should be deductable. aI'm sure she could just make it up out of undeclared tips.

Yes they are a business expense. Businesses do things they don't need all the time to increase revenue. It is investing in capital. Guys aren't going to be able to tell they are fake buy looking. And most guys tip better for big breast. I say all this and I don't even like big breast

Only if she leaves them at work. Otherwise, the discount needs to be prorated.
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/6/03 - 9:50:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
the taxes should be deferred to her husband...
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 3/21/03 - 9:51:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
no because i don't like strippers
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 4/1/03 - 6:51:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
lol! i agree with uncle laughie! hahaha!
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 4/1/03 - 6:54:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
It was worth a shot. People try regularly to deduct things that aren't even RELATED to their jobs...At least she had some kind of valid argument, however weak.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/21/05 - 11:06:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah! It IS a business expense!
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/21/05 - 11:06:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
so there!
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/21/05 - 11:08:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well they are a bussiness expensive. Ha! Unclelaughie has a point
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/21/05 - 11:13:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
They totally are a business expense.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/24/05 - 9:10:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
The problem: Women who want breast implants might take a stripping job for a few weeks to finance their surgery, then quit. There could be an abuse of the system.

That pill thing was a very good question.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/1/05 - 12:19:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think so. I mean, sure, business claim all kinds of dodgy stuff, but surgery should come under workers comp, and she's not unable to work without it.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/6/05 - 6:32:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
It sounds relevant to her income, actually

But that brightly decorated shop window IS a business expense - fully deductable.

I'm a cab driver. I deducted the cost of the digital recorder I use to make sure I get my instructions correctly from dispatch. I also deducted my book of maps.

Neither was ABSOLUTLY required for my job, but they help tremendously.

As do larger breasts if you are a stripper.

The breast job should have been tax deductable in this case.
