RSLL 017 | Record Keeping for Musicians with “The Singing CPA”

Posted in RSLL Podcast | No Comments »


Today’s podcast is a timely one. It’s my interview with Steven Zelin, aka “The Singing CPA” on the topic of “Record Keeping for Musicians”. Taxes, like death, is inevitable, and if you are a working musician, you must also file taxes on your musical income.

Steven Zelin is a CPA with a love of music and comedy, and has written songs such as “Dear IRS” and “If You Don’t Like Paying Taxes (Clap Your Hands)”. And for the past few years, he has a standing April 15th Tax Day gig performing at the main post office in NYC. So when the idea to write about this topic came up, he was the first person who came to mind. And when you think about it, he has one heck of a niche!

Steven shares a lot of great info on how musicians can keep better records to prepare for tax day. So tune in!
