REGISTRATION 2.3. – 16.3. 2022

There are TWO IDENTICAL taxation workshops happening this March. In these workshops, we will look into the practicalities of filing taxes for artists. The group is facilitated by Riikka Kuoppala and the meetings take place on 18th and 25th of March at Globe Art Point. Online participation is possible upon request.

Examples of topics covered:

– Differences in taxation for different kinds of artist income.

– How to file different kinds of grants.

– Deductions for an artist: studio rent, work trips, materials, technical equipment, etc.

– What if my deductions are bigger than my taxable income?

– International income.

– Correcting mistakes in the final decision.

Robin Hood taxation for the precariat

“Taxes are important. I pay my taxes happily and urge you to do the same. However, there are some groups in the society, especially among the self-employed, who statistically earn very little. They also often end up paying too much taxes, because their taxation is a lot more complicated than those working in steady jobs. I can help you with your tax return and teach you good practices and principles for personal accounting, so that next year you’ll be able to do it yourself.” Riika Kuoppala
