Taxes for Artists Workshop

Join Joseph Popp from Rea & Associates for a general overview of taxes that might impact artists, from sales tax to income tax.  We will talk about the dangerous tax pitfalls of kickstarter and similar services as well as some opportunities that will save you money and heartache (but might make you yell at an excel document of folder full of receipts).  This will be fast paced but there will be some time to stop along the way for questions or to examine an area in a little more detail.
