You will need to write off these expenses in the state that they occurred. DON’T lie about your current physical state. I have been lucky that my lovely mother has done my taxes for me every year aside from this current one. Aside from preparing for Alaska Dance Theatre’s Cash & Cline program, I have been teaching about 8 hours a week in their school, and preparing a 2-part, 4-hour lecture series on Career Development for the students of ADT.

Most employees when forced to resign from a job do not adopt the “fight” path, because although the firm might be reluctant to go through with the hassles of terminating, most firms remain competent to establish grounds for termination. Some employers have found that giving employees enough flexibility in their working hours increases productivity and morale. I am lucky enough that a member of my extended family is an accountant and willing to help me out.

I was strongly considering doing my own taxes this year, but the prospect of working as an employee with 2 companies and freelancing/teaching with at least 10 others was daunting.

Being given this opportunity by the wonderful staff of Alaska Dance Theatre to develop this workshop gives me a tool to make added income throughout the year. Thirty six hours prior to the convention, they emailed me without apology and told me that they lost their space for my workshop and wouldn’t need my service.
