for Visual Artists
|WHY WAIT UNTIL
APRIL 15 TO LEARN ABOUT THE MAJOR CHANGES IN THE TAX LAWS?
WHILE AN ARTIST MAY NOT KNOW HIS TAX DEDUCTION FROM A TAX
CREDIT, HE IS ALWAYS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OWN TAXES. TODAY'S
VISUAL ARTIST MUST FACE THE CHALLENGE OF EVER-CHANGING
BUSINESS RULES AND TAX REGULATIONS.
THIS SERIES OF
BOOKLETS SIMPLIFIES THE MYRIAD OF TAXES REQUIRED AND THE DATA
NEEDED FOR AN ARTIST'S TAX FILINGS. EACH OF THESE
TAXKITS IS WRITTEN IN PLAIN "ART TALK" BY A VISUAL
ARTIST EXPERIENCED IN TAX LAW. THEY CAN BE USED BY THE ARTIST
ALONE OR WITH HIS TAX PREPARER TO SAVE BOTH TIME AND MONEY!
|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.
