$ Talk with Tax Dad

Scott Hunzinger, the “Tax Dad” and CPA to designers everywhere, is here to answer your questions about $ in the era of COVID, and beyond.

Join us for a midday chat to discuss all things $. CPA Scott Hunzinger will share tips and answer questions on how individual designers, freelancers, and small business owners might acclimate to this new era.

While the CARES Act signed by Congress provided funds to assist small design businesses and freelancers, it lacked guidance, and the application process generated much confusion, frustration, and billions of emails to accountants everywhere.

In this new context, how might designers plan for financial resilience, and what immediate steps could they take? We will discuss questions such as:

  • How should I plan $ differently now.
  • When do I need to hire an accountant?
  • Should I hire a CPA?
  • What is a CPA?
  • How do I price myself?
  • What legal structure is best for my business?
  • What are some key performance indicators for designers and studios?
  • What is a red flag?
  • How much should I set aside for taxes?
  • What are some of the highlights in the CARES Act?
  • What should I be doing with my down time?
