Taxes for Artists with Hannah Cole
Tuesday, January 29, 2019
Tickets: $20 / $8 for members
As an artist, taxes can get particularly complicated. You may have several income streams, and your personal expenses sometimes intermix with your business expenses. In this workshop, led by Hannah Cole, you’ll learn how to operate as a creative business within the U.S. tax system. We’ll answer questions such as:
What can I deduct? Do I bring receipts to my accountant? Is my art a business or a hobby? What is a Schedule C? How do I deduct my home studio? How does the new tax bill affect freelancers?
Hannah Cole is a tax expert who specializes in working with creative businesses and artists. A long-time working artist with a high-level exhibition history, the financial challenges of freelancers and small creative businesses are both relevant and personal to Hannah. Her specialty is communicating complex tax issues in a clear, artist-centered, empowering way. She will explain the basic tax equation, keeping good records, and tax issues specifically relevant to new artists, followed by a question and answer period. Hannah Cole is an enrolled agent and the founder of Sunlight Tax.
