Hal Leonard says that if there is anything a creative person tends to dislike more than talking about money, it's talking about taxes. But as paying attention to the business side of your art is important, they have published a new book, Minding Your Business where author and practicing CPA, Martin Kamenski, takes US-based musicians by the hand and leads them through the tangled web of the IRS. Here's what the company has to say about it...
This book will end your fear of taxes and will help you lead the life you crave as a creative professional. The language is easy to understand for even the most number-illiterate. Minding Your Business provides guidance about when to treat yourself as a business, including all important considerations before incorporating and shattering some of the most prevalent (and costly) myths existing in the artistic community.
Minding Your Business is suitable for any actor, writer, musician, dancer, photographer, director, model, visual artist, band, or production company. The author's Chicago-based practice serves clients nationwide and offers artists and creative professionals the explanations they need. Kamenski has taken the very fine-tuned method of explaining taxes that made his practice successful and condensed it in a book that will pay for itself tenfold. The playing field is about to be leveled. Prepare to feel in control of your financial future!
