ADVICE WHEN YOU NEED IT

As an art teacher, I have a wage of more than $40,000 but as an exhibiting artist I sometimes spend more on materials than I receive in sales. Particularly when I am preparing for a big show. I did not realise, until Michael explained it to me, that the loss on my practice could not be deducted from my teaching wage unless I met certain conditions. Michael was able to work out the conditions that allowed me to claim the loss on my artist practice and the additional refund came in handy for my next show.

I was referred to Michael by a musician friend, who is one of his clients. My former accountant had prepared my return for the frst year where I had made good money and told me I had to pay $12,000 income tax. Michael explained that there were special tax rules for musicians and processed my return so that I did not have to pay the tax my former accountant said I had to pay.
