Opening Monday, February 26th, from 6PM - 8:30PM
In this talk, tax expert Janet Ecklebarger will demystify the income tax filing process for artists and explain the impacts of the new tax legislation.
Janet will guide us through the process of identifying and accounting for the many diverse income streams (from contract day jobs to grant awards and sales) and business-related expenses that comprise many artists’ livelihoods. The new tax legislation creates major changes for 2018 and she will address how those changes will affect the various situations for artists and other self-employed people.

Her experience working with clients for over 10 years has also contributed to her knowledge of record keeping strategies that can be implemented to throughout the year to help you streamline the process. In addition to sharing her insights on tax-filing best practices for artists, Janet will also be able to address questions pertinent to individualized circumstances.
