Event Details

This workshop will teach self-employed writers, artists, and other creative types how to keep track of income and expenses and save money on their taxes. Take this workshop, and learn how to write it off!
 
We will cover:

  • An in-depth discussion of tax-deductible expenses for self-employed artists.
  • An examination of wage vs. independent contractor income and expenses. (W-2s and 1099s)
  • Basic bookkeeping techniques and tips on how to run a “one-person business.”
  • Valuable hints on how to deal with self-employment income.
  • A demonstration of how to include business expenses on your tax return to significantly reduce your tax liability.
