Item 1C Self Employment Income

In regards to Item 1C Self Employment Income statement:
"In general, income and expenses from self-employment or operation of a business should be carefully reviewed to determine the appropriate level of gross income available to the parent to satisfy a child support obligation. In many cases this amount will differ from a determination of business income for tax purposes. The calculation of income for purposes of this section may increase gross income by certain deductions or other adjustments taken for income tax purposes."

So, if the self-employed parent deducts money for IRA for tax purposes should that be added back into gross income for child support purposes???

What other tax line items may apply to this question?

Thank you
