Rig the Gig: Tax Breaks for Freelancers Working Two or More Jobs

In this two-hour workshop you will learn why and how to:
• Run your freelancing business as an S Corporation with Colorado at a low cost
• Organize your receipts, records, pay stubs, invoices, etc. for tax purposes
• Deduct a portion of your rent/house payment, mileage, meals, car insurance, healthcare insurance, books, business-related travel, parking, association/union dues, electronics, cell phone bills, internet connection, and more!

Colorado’s gig economy comprises thousands of part-time journalists, content writers, photographers, web editors, graphic artists and creatives of all description. It leaves many feeling underpaid and powerless, especially when the stringing together of various gigs stings the pocketbook with self-employment taxes, come April 15. While we are all watching how California’s AB5 and AB2257 have helped address the misclassification of employees as independent contractors, it may be some time before similar legislation makes its way through the Colorado General Assembly.

Meanwhile, to help you keep more of your hard-earned 1099 income, join us at this freelancer-focused tax workshop. It will be led by Roberta Bertrand, Enrolled Agent, an experienced Tax Manager at the eighth-largest CPA firm in the country. She is federally licensed to represent clients before the IRS and state entities. She specializes in sole-proprietor and S-Corp tax filings. Caprice Lawless, co-presenter, incorporated years ago to frame her writing, editing, and teaching under contract to various state, federal, and non-profit entities.

Learn how to incorporate as a single member LLC, elect S Corp status, and how doing so opens you up to the many unexpected advantages of running your gig or gigs as your own business.

Presented by the Denver Press Club, this workshop is free for DPC members, $5 for non-members.
