Houston Artists: Tax Time is Right Around the Corner

taxesEven artists have to pay taxes and it’s often more complicated than other people’s taxes. Texas Accountants and Lawyers for the Arts (TALA) wants to help. On February 8 at 6:30pm, TALA will offer a free workshop at Project Row Houses called “Tax Preparation for Artists.” CPA Kathy Ploch will cover the following topics:

  • What it means to be self-employed/independent contractor
  • What the self-employment tax is and how it is paid
  • Keeping records of income and expenses
  • Which expenses are deductible
  • What is needed to prepare your taxes
  • Estimated tax payments
  • Business versus hobby rules
  • Sales tax and employment tax
  • Home office expenses

If you have bigger problems than taxes, TALA is offering 30-minute consultations at Fresh Arts the following evening (February 9 at 6:30pm). The consultations are free for those with an annual household income of under $50,000, but legal issues and questions must be related to work in the creative fields. Registration is required.
