2018 Tax & Business Guide for Authors Course

2018 Tax & Business Guide for Authors Course


“As CEO of Author Media, I’ve coached authors on marketing for over five years. During that time, some of the most common questions have been related to taxes, LLCs, and all the business-related elements of being an author. Many authors tend to ignore the business side of writing. This is not a good idea since they often either get into trouble with the IRS or pay way more than their fair share in taxes.


So, we brought in a CPA who has coached authors, celebrities, and small businesses for over thirty years. He is the guy that the other accountants turn to with their questions. He is honest, creative, and smart – a unique combination among accountants. He also happens to be my dad, Tom Umstattd Sr. He has asked me several times not to call him an “expert” so I’ll let you make that determination on your own.

When April 15 rolls around, you’ll be glad you took this course.”
