Let’s talk about death and taxes

Mystery Writers of America’s Midwest Chapter is hosting their February meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota.  The meeting is from 1 to 3 PM on Saturday, February 9th at the St. Paul Public Library – Highland Park location.  Although this is geared towards mystery writers, it is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about MWA and its Midwest chapter.

February’s meeting will feature Mindy Mejia, who—in addition to having a successful writing career—is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Mindy will be discussing a broad range of tax questions geared specifically toward self-employed and freelance writers. We’ll start with distinguishing business income from hobby income, and then move on to considerations for choosing a tax treatment. Should you file as a sole proprietor? An S-corporation? We’ll look at adjustments and deductions and how to plan and properly report your expenses.

Mindy Mejia is an internationally acclaimed thriller writer whose work has been translated into over twenty languages. She’s the author of THE DRAGON KEEPER and EVERYTHING YOU WANT ME TO BE, which was a People’s Best New Books Pick and listed in The Wall Street Journal’s Best New Mysteries. Her latest novel, LEAVE NO TRACE, is on sale now. You can find out more at MindyMejia.com.
