We will go through the income tax self-employment form (officially the “Statement of Business or Professional Income” or Form T2125), focusing on what can be included in each of the business expenses categories, how the business-use-of-home expenses are calculated, and how using a spreadsheet can help you keep track of your expenses as a self-employed artist. Basic knowledge of Excel spreadsheets would help but is not required.
