California Lawyers for the Arts Presents 

Relax with Tax for Creative Freelancers

with John McGovern

It's tax season again and time for CLA's annual tax seminar for creative freelancers! Join us to learn how to efficiently track income and expenses throughout the year, and don't miss the deductions you can make as a self-employed creative. Topics will include record keeping, Form 1040, Form 1099, Schedule C, the self-employment schedule, deductions, hobby losses, home offices, and more.

A comprehensive e-workbook, "The Art of Deduction," is included with the admission fee.

About our Speaker: 

John has been practicing public accounting on Montgomery Street for the last 20 years with four regional firms. He joined Delagnes, Mitchell & Linder LLP in 2019 and continues to practice in their tax department preparing and reviewing individual, partnership, corporate, and fiduciary (trusts) tax returns. He graduated from Georgetown University with a B.S. in Liberal Arts, the University of San Francisco with a Masters of Business Administration, and Golden Gate University with a Masters in Taxation. John is the fourth generation of his family to work in San Francisco’s financial district; his great grandmother, Katherine (McLaughlin) McGovern, was employed here as a stenographer in the 1870s. John grew up on the SF Peninsula and currently lives in San Mateo with his wife Andrea and their two Golden Retrievers.
