South Florida Bloggers March Meetup: Tax Advice for Tax Season

Influencers get ready for tax season 2020. Join us for tax, accounting, and legal advice for influencers, bloggers, and content creators.

It’s that time of the year, we have to prepare our tax returns for ourselves and our business. Join us and learn the best tips for submitting your taxes now that you have a blog. Our panelists LeeBetsy Charon from The Craft Accountant and Franklin A Jara, Esq. will be sharing accounting and legal advice for bloggers, content creators, and influencers.

Not sure if your purchases are tax deductible? When should you start a company for your blog? What terminology should you look out for in a partnership contract?
