Welcome to the Children’s Book Marketing Podcast! In this episode, I sit down for a Conversation with The Savvy Accountant, Atiya Brown. She is a licensed CPA, author of the book “Savvy Tax Strategies for Small Business Owners,” and what she has to share is essential are insights into tax strategies that every children’s book author should know about.
Atiya’s emphasis on the importance of separating personal and business finances is one reason you should tune in. Also, you’ll find in this episode the significance of maintaining proper bookkeeping and understanding state sales tax regulations.
And if that’s not enough to get you oozing with interest about taxes and bookkeeping, then our discussion on the transition from a sole proprietor to setting up a business entity certainly will. Check out this episode and save it so that you’ll have this foundational understanding from the perspective of an expert advisor on tax matters relevant to self-published authors.
