Next Monday, March 23rd at 7PM, Paul Devlin will be on a panel hosted by the DCTV (87 Lafayette Street, NYC)!
Freelancers, rejoice! Just in time for the dreaded tax season, DCTV will be presenting an informative and calm-inducing panel discussion on tax preparation for independent filmmakers and freelance artists.
From learning about great tax saving deductions, to taxes in the sharing economy, new challenges with Obamacare, and what you need to know about the IRS and how to protect yourself in case of an audit, this well-rounded panel will keep you informed and hopefully put you at ease.
