How will the new tax laws affect your quarterly withholding?
Are there any changes to your itemized deductions?
What should you do now to prepare for next year?

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the most sweeping change to our tax code to come along in years. So how will it affect creative freelancers like us?
Let’s have lunch and find out! Join us for an information-packed Lunch & Learn session outside the perimeter, at Foundation Social Eatery on Holcomb Bridge Road.


Diana Crawford has been a CPA since 1991 and is a partner with Atlanta CPA firm Crawford, Merritt
& Company. She is a Georgia State graduate, and a QuickBooks expert.

She believes accounting needs to be proactive, not reactive, so it’s important for all taxpayers to get
to know the new rules and be ready for next year. You can check out  Diana and  Crawford, Merritt

From GA-400, take exit 7A heading east on Holcomb Bridge Road.  Drive .9 miles and look for a sign on your left for AQUA BLUE. Foundation Social Eatery is in the same strip center, in the corner. We will have a private room in the back.

No charge for admission. Buy your own lunch. Dress: casual as always.

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
