This book does a good job of setting out tax advice for "creative people." Several chapters are devoted to general issues pertinent to nearly anyone who is self-employed or who receives significant income from self-employment, such as how to set up a business or how to choose a tax adviser. Separate chapters are devoted to the concerns of: actors, directors, and dancers; musicians and singers; visual artists; and writers. These chapters are particularly useful because they reproduce filled-in examples of actual tax forms (the edition I am reviewing used the forms for 2009). If the book has a significant drawback, it is that most people will fall into only one of the categories, making several of the chapters irrelevant to them. But this book is a good place to start if you are launching a career in the arts or if you have decided to take a more systematic approach to managing your taxes.
