Taxes for Artists


One of the biggest hurdles artists have wrestle with every single year is filing their taxes. Between choosing which Schedule to fill out, how many qualified deductions one can make, and deciding if ones studio practice is a bona fide business, artists make many common mistakes when reporting to Uncle Sam.

Hamiltonian Artists Board Member Richard Kamenitzer, Executive Director of the International Center for the Management of Arts & Culture, Program Director and Professor of Arts Management at George Mason University, College of Visual & Performing Arts, will help clarify the different avenues artists can take when administrating the business of their art and speak about:

  • Fact vs.Fiction
  • Record keeping
  • What is required to be declared income and what is deductible expense, including the "home studio"

The talk will begin promptly at 7pm at Hamiltonian Gallery, on Wednesday, February 3, 2010. Please RSVP to Jacqueline Ionita, Director of Hamiltonian Gallery, and for all other related inquiries. jackie@hamiltoniangallery.com, 202.332.1116

Please DO come prepared with questions that will help you understand the tax process for artists!

Please DO NOT come with your W2's, as we are not preparing your taxes!
