Reminder: CBC Freelance Education Sessions

Thursday, March 3: Tax Time for Freelancers

From the moment the clock ticked midnight on December 31, your financial affairs, for the most part, of 2021, came to an end. All the receipts, bills and invoices you’ve been throwing into the big shoebox are done for the year and it’s time to make your peace with your taxes and the CRA.

Learn how to navigate the tax return minefield with Shannon Lee Simmons, founder of the New School of Finance. Shannon will do a deep dive on eligible deductions from your income, G/HST returns, income from foreign sources and yes, what to keep in mind if you end up taking that shoebox to a tax professional.

This session is structured with lots of room for questions. Your chances of getting getting your question answered is increased if you send send questoins in advance to Canadian Freelance Guild Organizer, Don Genova at organizer@canadianfreelanceguild.ca.

Online – Thursday, March 3
1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Time
$5 for members
$15 for non-members
