A real estate agent who was "a little bit big on the bottom", according to her tax preparer, bought a number of pairs of the slimming underwear called Spanx because she thought looking smaller would help her sell more houses.
The tax preparer, who asked to remain anonymous, said the woman also argued that wearing Spanx helped her to sit down more comfortably with clients. But the preparer had to axe the deduction since there was no hard proof it impacted her business or income, making it hard to qualify the undergarment as a business expense.
