In the most recent episode, we tackle tax issues with Carol Topp, a certified CPA who not only knows tax laws in and out, but is also a writer so her emphasis is specific to writers. Listening to this now, whether using the advice for the past tax season or the upcoming one, could help you save money and make decisions on how to invest in yourself as a writer.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Simple deductions many writers overlook
  • Are writing conferences and book purchases something you can write off?
  • If you buy and sell your own books, when can you write them off?
  • How should you keep track of your expenses?
  • And more!
