Contrary to popular belief, an artist can create some surprising tax consequences for himself in the making, selling, trading and giving of his artworks. Whether the artist is a beginner, a hobbyist, or a seasoned professional, his seemingly innocent art activity may unwittingly flag license requirements or other undesirable tax liabilities - which, at the same time, qualify the artist for special tax breaks! Using these TaxKits can relieve the artist of his tax frustration by showing him how to benefit from the arcane rules of taxation.

The TaxKits are intended as a quick reference to critical tax and business issues affecting visual artists every day. They are updated regularly, with new versions released every mid-January. All TaxKits may be used in conjunction with official IRS publications and other commercial tax manuals. The cost of such items is a deductible expense on the professional artist's federal income tax return.
