Announcement, ladies!!

If you find yourself pregnant on December 31st you must claim your pregnancy on your tax return for that year.

When the IRS questions it, you tell them the pregnancy is a living baby according to many state laws. Thus, you can definitely claim a dependent.

If they deny it, take it to the Supreme Court and see what they decide!!

I implore you ladies to do this!
