Taxes for Artists, Freelancers and Creative Businesses
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? Hannah Cole is the founder of Sunlight Tax and a tax expert who specializes in friendly, informative tax preparation for artists and creative businesses and engaging, art-world savvy tax education workshops for artist groups.
A long-time working artist with a high-level exhibition history and a tax and money columnist for the art blog Hyperallergic, the financial challenges of freelancers and small creative businesses are both relevant and personal to Hannah.
Hannah discusses the basic tax equation, self-employment tax and the estimated quarterly tax system, audit concerns for the creative person, and other tax issues specifically relevant to artists and makers, followed by a question and answer period.
