Taxes for Artists, Freelancers, and Creative Businesspeople with Hannah Cole,
Enrolled Agent of Sunlight Tax

What can I deduct? Should I bring my receipts to my accountant? Is my art a business or a hobby? Hannah Cole is a tax expert who specializes in working with creative businesses. As a long-time working artist with a high-level exhibition history, and a tax and money columnist for Hyperallergic, Hannah understand the financial challenges of freelancers and small creative businesses on both personal and professional levels.

Cole will discuss and answer questions about the basic tax equation, self-employment tax and the estimated quarterly tax system, audit concerns for the working artist, and other tax issues specifically relevant to artists.

Hannah Cole is the founder of Sunlight Tax, which specializes in friendly, informative tax preparation for artists, and engaging, art-world savvy tax education workshops for artist groups.
