Introducing: Working On It! Our new professional development workshop series for artists. Join us for part 1: Taxes for Artists, Creatives + Freelancers on Saturday April 6th from 6-7:30pm. It’s tax season and if you’re like many artists, creatives and freelancers in Hamilton, you’re losing sleep. But do not fret! Sunny Widerman from Personal Tax Advisors is here to answer your questions and help you get our paperwork in order. Sunny says that freelancing is as “thrilling as it is challenging, but it’s equally important to have an understanding of the nuts and bolts of being in business. Taxes are a huge part of that.” In this workshop you’ll learn about the GST-HST, deductible expenses, setting aside money for tax, and why doing what you love is great business. Take the opportunity to ask all your lingering tax questions during the Q&A from an expert who has been working in taxes since 2002. No judgement, just great advice and information with a sense of humour on the side.


Sunny Widerman has been a tax preparer and advisor since 2002, with a growing clientele of freelancers, business owners and professionals. Through her firm Personal Tax Advisors, Sunny specializes in helping clients take control of their tax planning by explaining the tax issues that affect them. She focuses on a gentle, non-threatening approach to financial issues and clear, jargon free language.
