Taxes for ArtistsOne of the biggest hurdles artists have wrestle with every single year is filing their taxes. Between choosing which Schedule to fill out, how many qualified deductions one can make, and deciding if ones studio practice is a bona fide business, artists make many common mistakes when reporting to Uncle Sam.
Hamiltonian Artists Board Member Richard Kamenitzer, Executive Director of the International Center for the Management of Arts & Culture, Program Director and Professor of Arts Management at George Mason University, College of Visual & Performing Arts, will help clarify the different avenues artists can take when administrating the business of their art and speak about:
- Fact vs.Fiction
- Record keeping
- What is required to be declared income and what is deductible expense, including the "home studio"
