About the Session:
Tax season is upon us and this can be a particularly stressful time for artists, but have no fear! Tax Preparer Tova Epp, a specialist in actor and other artist taxes at Artbooks, is ready to answer all of your tax related questions. This 2.5 hour session will touch on some of the most important tax topics for artists including: how to know what a deduction is, tax deadlines, HST, day jobs, and the specific challenges of actor taxes. The session is ideal for artists who are new to filing taxes or those who are looking for a refresher.
