As if taxes weren’t already complicated enough! Now, for the 2020 filing season, artists who received support from any of the many federal and state relief efforts must learn about the tax implications of each program. Never fear! For decades, Amy Smith has prepared taxes for artists, taught financial well-being workshops, and coached artists one on one. This special, Rhode Island-focused webinar will cover the tax implications of a variety of RI and federal pandemic relief that artists may have received in 2020, including emergency relief grants and loans, unemployment, PPP, EIDL, and other federal CRF funds like Restore RI and Business Adaptation Grants. Amy will explain what to do if you received some of this relief, and also what to do if you already filed and now realize you filed incorrectly. Plus, we’ll have an update on any additional 2021 relief available to artists in the most recent funding stimulus and relief bill. Amy Smith is an educator, professional tax-preparer and the former Co-Director of Headlong Dance Theater, a Bessie-award winning Philadelphia-based dance theater company.
Suitable for artists of all disciplines. Open to RI artists.
