Freelancers: Don’t Get Bit By Taxes

September 15 is just around the corner, so all you freelancers are putting your third estimated tax voucher in the mail soon, right? (right? right?) And you’ve got only a third of the year left to plan any big-ticket purchases that may reduce your tax liability.

Now’s a perfect time to brush up on your tax knowledge if you haven’t lately, and if you’re in NYC, mediabistro has just the class for you.

Tax Guidelines for Freelancers is a three-hour class next Wednesday that will answer all your burning tax questions—about deductions, recordkeeping, and saving for retirement. The cost is $65 ($50 for AvantGuild members), but guess what, freelancers? The class is probably tax deductible. (Find out by hiring Howard Samuels, the class’s teacher, as your tax pro —AG members get 10% off.)

Shameless self-pimp: More freelance tax tips are here, from your (not-so) humble MediaJobsDaily editor.
