Artists, writers, musicians, graphic artists, filmmakers – anyone working as an independent arts contractor will benefit from a review of what is necessary to file your taxes this year. Join the St. Pete Arts Alliance for a Zoom workshop on February 25 from 1-2:30 pm.

Susan Plage of Intuit (TurboTax, QuickBooks, Quicken, Mint and ProConnect) is a Tax Expert and an IRS Enrolled Agent. This is Susan’s fifth year teaching this popular session.

Topics we’ll cover:

  • Income (W-2 and 1099-MISC)
  • Identify ordinary deductions
  • Identify deductions for creative businesses
  • Identify Creative Business Expenses (Form 2106, Schedule A and Schedule C)
  • Review the overall income tax landscape for federal and state filings
  • Identify records to retain for tax purposes and effective systems for tracking expenses
  • How to report emergency relief aid or PPP funds.

SPAA Workshops are a program of our Virtual Arts Resource Center, supported by the Bank of America Foundation, Pinellas Community Foundation, TD Bank Foundation and the City of St. Petersburg’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
