Pretax earnings or profits

Net income before federal income taxes are subtracted.

Pretax Earnings or Profits

A company's total revenue less its operating expenses, interest paid, and depreciation, but not taxes. For example, a widget manufacturer earns $1,000,000 in total revenue. The widgets cost $200,000 to make and his administrative and payroll expenses total $250,000. He also must subtract $50,000 in depreciation on his widget manufacturing equipment. His net income is stated as: $1,000,000 - $200,000 - $250,000 - $50,000 = $500,000. It is important to note, however, that this number does not include any taxes that the widget manufacturer must pay that year; this fact is what differentiates pretax earnings or profits from net income.
