Event Description

A community presentation for artists, donors, and professional advisors

If you pursue an artistic or creative profession, you probably don't expect to generate all your income in the beginning from your efforts. In fact, you may need to work a second job, and it might even cost you money to pursue your creative career. As a result, you'll likely need to deal with a tax regulation called the Hobby Loss Rule. In his presentation, Doug Nelson will walk through the potential impact of this rule on creative professionals and best practices to help you both pursue your passion while reducing the risk of problems with the IRS.
