It's that time of the year...


Howdy and Welcome to my blog.


I was talking to a friend the other day about Tax time and being an artist and what we can take off of our taxes. 
Then I began to think...

 I had wrote a couple of blogs some time back on "Becoming a Creative Business Person" and  "Info on how to outsmart some scammers" (This talk about Tax Time.)
  
So I went back and found them and posted them here... 
I would also like to add my own Tax sheet that I use and give to my tax man each year. I hope it might help some of you out.
