Question What is your pre-tax net profit for calendar year 2001?

Letís see how this works out. Iím hoping it can lead to some quality discussions. Your ďvoteĒ is 100% anonymous. I am reluctant to mention this but please be honest when you select your answer and only vote once.

2 digits: $10.00
3 digits: $100.00
4 digits: $1000.00
5 digits: $10000.00
6 digits: $100000.00

Definitions (edit of 7/25/01):
"What is your pre-tax net profit for calendar year 2001?"

1) Calendar year 2001 begins on 1/1/01 and runs through the current day. It's not the last 365 days or the last year. It's sometimes refered to as "year to date"

2) "pre-tax net profit" for the purposes of this poll and a ballpark definition for self employed folks is :

I cashed checks for $12,000.00 for CPA, CPM, and CPC campaigns for period 1/1/01 through today. Thats your gross and NOT your net. It's never your NET as all business have exspenses.

3) I spent a total of $7,000.00 for the period 1/1/01 through the current day for EXSPENSES like hosting, advertising, custom coding work, rent, graphic artists fees.

4) My "...pre-tax net profit for calendar year 2001" is NOT $12,000.00. My pre-tax net is:

12k minus 7k = 5K

5) Salaried GEEKS of which we have plenty get a "pay stub" which showes gross earnings and net.

Please post in this thread if anything in the Poll is not clear or you donít understand it. Good luck
