I know I’ve mentioned that CCH offers a free tax guide for journalists in the past. But as tax season closes in on us, I think it’s worth bringing up again. The booklet covers a wide variety of topics, including income from prizes, copyright, libel insurance and even advice for foreign correspondents living abroad. Furthermore, if you have an older version already, it’s probably worth requesting the 2009 booklet. This year’s edition has been updated to include the wide variety of changes made to the tax laws and regulations since you last prepared your taxes.
You can get a free print copy of the guide by emailing Leslie Bonacum at mediahelp [at] cch [dot] com. Include your address in the email so that they can send a copy of the guide your way. More information is available through CCH’s website.
