Writing Can be so “Taxing”
Chris Morris, CPA
Most writers and authors don’t exactly get excited about taxes or accounting. Actually, it probably stresses you out…but it doesn’t have to. Get answers to the most commonly asked questions from a CPA who specializes in authors.
This workshop will cover the following topics:
- What you can and cannot write off
- When it makes sense to hire a CPA
- When you have a business, not just a hobby
- Why you might be flagged for an audit, and how to avoid it
There will also be time for questions. When is the last time a CPA gave you an open forum to help you out, at no cost?
Key Takeaways include:
- What is a “good write-off” for your business
- Identify when you have a business instead of a hobby
- Understand how to write off travel for research trips
