Taxes and authors: What you should know in 2021

×
In his TAA webinar presentation, "Taxes & Authors: What You Should Know in 2021", Robert Pesce, a partner with Marcum LLP, provided guidance on when it is beneficial for authors to form a business entity, strategies for managing business income and expenses, and how the qualified business income deduction (QBI) applies to authors. As soon as your authoring efforts produce income in excess of $400, you are officially running a business - whether you define a business entity or not. According to Pesce, any income in excess of $400 must be reported on a Schedule C filed with your tax return and is subject to self-employment tax.
