Between 1099s, business expenses, personal deductions, and more, actor taxes can be an intimidating venture. On Tuesday, Feb. 17, Backstage University is partnering with tax accountant, lawyer, and actor Sandra Karas to bring you a special tax season webinar; tune in at 4 p.m. EST to learn the in’s and out’s of actor tax preparation, demystifying the process and helping you to get the highest deductions possible!

In addition to her roles as Secretary-Treasurer of Actors’ Equity Association and SAG-AFTRA New York Local board member, Karas serves as the Director of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) and has been helping actors master their taxes for over 30 years.
