The weather is getting warmer as spring is approaching. That can only mean one thing: it’s that time of year again! Taxes! Oh joy! Filing your taxes as an actor and/or voice artist can be an incredibly stressful prospect. There are so many ways that your taxes can go wrong and leave you owing a lot more money to the US government. Because you work for so many different clients, you’ll end up with a ton of individual forms. How are you going to keep track of everything and be expected to correctly file your taxes?
Even if this is the first year you’re filing your taxes as a voice talent or your 20th, it’s always a challenge. Should you file as Schedule A or Schedule C? Should you incorporate your voice over business into an LLC or should you stay a sole proprietorship? What can you realistically write off?
If trying to answer any of these questions makes you nervous, this is the class for you.
In Tax Time, Tom Dheere will help you determine the best way to approach filing your taxes for the previous fiscal year. You’ll walk away from this class with a much clearer understanding of how to file your taxes as a voice talent living and working in the United States.
In this class, students will learn:
- How to determine if incorporating is right for them, or if it makes more sense
- What you should be making for Quarterly Estimated Payments based on your income as a voice artist so you don’t have to pay as much at the end of the year
- The basics of how to file their taxes in the United States
- And best of all, what you can realistically write off as tax deductible in your voice over career so you ultimately owe less on your returns
