TAXES FOR ARTISTS, ARTISANS & PERFORMERS

Date: Wednesday, March 22, 7:00 pm

Location: Studio 2880 Workshop Room (over Artisan gift Shoppe), 2880 15th Avenue Prince George

As a creative person, about the LAST think you want to think about is taxes - they can often be a source of stress or confusion for you in the business of your art.  Now you can take away the anxiety and uncertainty about this necessary evil!  This session will review what you have to track, and the forms you have to fill out, as well as share some tips about write-offs, and how to best organize your records so that you can focus the most time on what you love most - doing your art!  Matt Hutcheon of MDH Tax Services has over 20 years experience doing small business taxes, and uses humour and everyday language in his presentations to help you understand more and feel better about this aspect of what you do as an artist. The workshop is open to members of the Community Arts Council and is free of charge. Spaces are limited. Please RSVP to arts@studio2880.com before Friday, March 17th.
