It's tax time! (Yippee?) But for those that make their living through the arts, the process of creating your tax return is a little more complicated than getting your T4s together, buying a copy of Quick Tax and inputting your vital data. But don't let that stop you, or turn you off, from embracing that typically artistic acronym: Do-It-Yourself, or DIY.
In a new workshop from the Guelph Arts Council, Leo Medeiros of the chartered accounting firm Weiler & Company will take participants through the process and give them the information they need to know to do their taxes right and without the intervention of someone, well, like him. Details from the GAC press release are below:
Guelph Arts Council Workshop // DIY Taxes for Artists

Don’t let the numbers overwhelm you this tax season! On Tuesday, March 4th at 7pm, come down to the Guelph Arts Council Office (147 Wyndham St. N. -- Suite 404) to take part in a special workshop hosted by Leo Medeiros.
