Tax Time. It’s stressful and no one likes doing them especially if you’re self employed in the entertainment industry. Whether you are an actor, musician, writer, dancer, model or theatrical technician, Actors Taxes will tailor your tax returns to ensure that you secure as much of a refund as you are entitled to, taking advantage of each and every deduction, or if you owe, making sure that you pay only what is due the government and not one penny more.

The Rules have changed... What about your Tax Strategy?

In 2018, the tax code changed favorably for properly set up self employed individuals. Many, like yourself, don’t realize they should be operating as a small business. Even if you receive many W2 tax forms with deductions, you are your own small business and should be treated as such. You need to be properly setup to take advantage of the new rules, if not, you are paying more than your fair share in taxes.

A large portion of tax professionals are trained to handle individual taxes or big corporate taxes, and they do that very well, however, even though you may be incorporated (S-Corp or other), they apply the individual rules to your business which means you end up paying more in taxes.

In order to capitalize on the new rules and reduce your tax burden, you need a different approach. Here’s why:

  • The Tax Code Changed Favorably for You, the self employed actor
  • You are a small business and should be treated as such
  • Costs of incorporating has plummeted
  • You need a Tax professional with Corporate and Small Business expertise

Many individuals view all of this as a stressful huge burden and it shouldn’t be - we’ve helped thousands of people just like you to reduce their stress and their tax burden.
