RISD Careers | Taxes for Artists & Creative Freelancers - Art of Business

What can I deduct? Do I bring receipts to my accountant? How do I deduct my home studio? Why do freelancers have to pay taxes quarterly, and how do I do that? These are some of the questions we’ll be discussing with Hannah Cole, a tax expert who specializes in working with creative businesses and artists. A longtime working artist with a high-level exhibition history and a tax and money columnist for the art blog Hyperallergic, Cole understands the financial challenges freelancers and small creative businesses face. She will discuss the basic tax equation, self employment tax and the estimated quarterly tax system, audit concerns for the creative person and other tax issues specifically relevant to artists, designers and makers.
