TAX CONSIDERATIONS FOR MUSICIANS
- Colorado A Cappellists,
The following note is something many of you should find interest in. We're approaching tax time and, if you're in the same boat with many other musicians, you're always in some doubt about how to get the best deal when reporting artist income and the business related benefits you can claim.
This looks to me like a great chance to learn something that could help you for years to come. When I spoke with the director, Michael Miller, he suggested offering you his email address, to which you may forward specific questions in advance, to be highlighted by the tax experts at this evening session. Too few of you groups have non-profit status, so you have more tax exposure than you should be bearing. I'm sure you'll get some clues on how to massage some of your information to lessen that burden.
No reservations required. C199 is right next to Grusin Auditorium and should provide ample room. I can think of a dozen of you I know right now who should be there: Adam, Joseph, Christine, Dutch, Dana and Bianca among others. Hey, it's free!
