Relax with Tax for Artists & the Self-Employed

with Jeffrey Thompson, Enrolled Agent (E.A.)

It's our annual tax season seminar for creative freelancers! This year, learn how to efficiently track income and expenses throughout the year, and don't miss the deductions you can make as a self-employed creative. Topics will include record keeping, form 1040, Schedule C, the self-employment schedule, deductions, hobby losses, home offices, and more.

A comprehensive workbook, "The Art of Deduction," is included with the admission fee.  Additional handouts will also be provided.
