Hosted by Propeller Fund, this workshop led by Janet Ecklebarger instructs artists on how to properly claim grants on their taxes and how to account for artwork sales, honoraria, and more. 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.
Janet Ecklebarger earned her Master’s degree from Cranbrook, in 1992. She has been working as a tax associate since 2005 and specializes in deductions for artists, musicians, and other creative types while also offering tax and accounting techniques for the right-brained.
