Although when Freelance Austin met on April 8, the federal tax filing deadline was just a week away, there were still some tax moves self-employed filers could have made.

Tax guru Kay Bell, author of The Truth About Paying Fewer Taxes (FT Press) and keeper of two tax blogs, Don’t Mess With Taxes and Eye on the IRS, discussed deductions you can claim, ways to cut your 2008 tax bill and audit red flags you definitely don’t want to fly.

Even if you’ve already filed your 2008 return, there were lots of tips on how to make next year’s filing tasks less costly and more tolerable.

The meeting was held at:

Austin Public Library – Spicewood Springs Branch
8637 Spicewood Springs Rd., Austin, TX 78759
