Get organized for tax season. Diana from Treehouse Taxes will focus on tax issues for independent artists. She will answer the following questions and more: 

What is considered income?
Am I self employed?
What if I have a mix of w2 and 1099 income?
What expenses are deductible?
Are there other ways to reduce my tax bill?
What records do I need to keep?
Do I need to pay quarterly taxes?

About the Presenter: Diana has spent the last 18 years juggling the life of a performing artist while developing and maintaining her left brain as the managing director of an arts organization, a waitress, an acrobatics instructor, an office manager, a massage therapist, a bookkeeper and finally a full-fledged tax nerd. Diana knows about cobbling together an income, tracking expenses, and pursuing a dream. Through it all she maintains that connection is the point of everything.
