Your Guide to Book Publishing podcast: Taxes for Writers

July 19th, 2013 → 8:39 pm @



I was honored to be interviewed by Judith Briles’ podcast: Your Guide to Book Publishing

Judith’s podcast is EXCELLENT. I always learn  a ton from her guests and Judith herself.

We talked about :

  • The top business mistakes authors make
  • Tax deductions for writers
  • If Judith’s cruise is a legitimate tax deduction
  • How a self published author pays herself
  • What to expect to pay in taxes if your a self published author
  • When does  an author move from hobby writing to a business?
  • Should an author consider being an LLC? What will LLC status do for them?
  • How to find a good, helpful accountant


Listen to the podcast here. (This link will allow you to download the podcast and listen in)

Look for the April 29, 2013 podcast titled Tax Tips and Strategies for Authors 04-29-2013


Listen to the whole thing (about an hour). It’s like a free hour-long consultation with a CPA ($75 value!).
