BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!! This workshop will be ideal for self-employed artists and craftspeople that have little or no experience preparing taxes. If you dread tax season, and put off thinking about your taxes until the last minute, then this workshop is for you.

The workshop will cover the fundamentals of taxation for individuals, with an emphasis on the self-employed. It will cover which expenses are deductible, what kind of record keeping is required and how to get and stay organized.

After completing this workshop, participants will be armed with the tools to be organized, track revenues and expenses and make tax preparation as painless as possible.

Facilitator: Marianna Scott has been in accounting since 1987. She has been preparing personal taxes for the self-employed since 1996, with a focus on the arts and culture industry for the past six years. This will be Marianna’s third time presenting an Alliance workshop.

Workshop cost: $50 (+GST) for Alliance members, $75 (+GST) for non-members
