Small business owners have a lot on their plate—design, create, manage, order, market, keep books. When it comes to taxes, are you aware of every deduction available to you? Do you run your business from home? Use your vehicle? Sam Kaffine, small business owner and HR Block Tax Analyst, has been helping small business owners like yourself get their maximum allowable refund for years. The IRS has committed to audit every return in the country within the next 6 years. Protect yourself - make sure you are taking every deduction available to you, and none that are not!

 

Come see what she has to say, connect with other creatives, and learn some things that will help you to KEEP your hard-earned money! Even if you have already filed your 2019 return, we offer useful tips and information that will help you in the future, presented in a fun, informal atmosphere.
