Tax season can be a particularly stressful and confusing time for artists, performers and other creatives. This workshop will help you to be prepared for next year! Atbooks Senior Tax Preparer Tova Epp will touch on some of the most important tax topics for artists including: tax preparation, deductions, tax deadlines, HST, how to handle grants, T4s and more. The session is suitable for artists who are new to filing taxes or those who are looking for a refresher.

There will be a short presentation followed by a question and answer period. Please come prepared with your questions!


Artbooks was launched over 30 years ago as Canada’s first organization dedicated to artists and entrepreneurs financial sanity We provide tax preparation and consultation for sole proprietors/freelancers with a focus on the arts.

Tova Epp is a tax preparer/actor/certified animals-in-disaster rescuer. She’s been working at Artbooks for 11 years, doing the taxes of many inspiring artists. When she’s not at Artbooks she can be seen at one of her many other jobs around the city, or auditioning for yet another commercial.
