This is notification for a Washington Lawyers for the Arts workshop. This is not a meetup group social event - it is a lecture which anyone is welcome to attend. The lecture starts promptly at 7, so please come at 6:45 to allow plenty of time to check in, find your seat, or pay for your ticket if you're that sort of last-minute person.
If interested in attending, please go to http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/571440 to purchase tickets. I'm not in charge of tickets or attendance, and I don't get any profits, nor can I answer any questions. Please contact the WLA directly if you have any questions or concerns at:

Depreciation, capital gains, deductions, W-2s, 1099s! Having trouble keeping track of it all? Neil Sussman's popular tax workshop is back to guide artists and their attorneys through yet another season of gains, losses, formulas and forms. Learn all the basics you need, plus special tips and what's new for your 2013 tax return.
Designed specifically to address the arts and entertainment issues, topics to be covered will include:
What deductions can be claimed
What tax forms to use and how to fill them out
How to keep business and tax records in an organized manner
How to minimize the chances of getting audited
"All the information at an affordable price," and "I knew next to nothing about taxes before this workshop; now I have some great info" are just two of the many favorable comments we received from previous workshops. Space is limited for what is sure to be a popular event, so registration is encouraged!
