For creative freelancers who need to do their taxes: I had AFC columnist and accountant Hannah Cole prepare mine this year, and in the 20 years I have been filing taxes I’ve never had a better accountant. Why? Because she takes the time to ask the kind of questions that will save you money. And then she tells you how much money you saved! It feels great.
— Paddy Johnson, Executive Director of Art F City



I’ve been a working artist for over 15 years. And everything good that has happened in my art career has come from my fellow artists. I started Sunlight Tax to give back to the creative community that has nurtured me. My mission is to give you the financial security tools you need to take big risks and kick ass. 

Courses available:

This series is building my confidence, so I can move forward with my career!
