About the Author: Walt Eddy

Walt grew up in the Great Basin in the United States of America. He graduated from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in German. He also has many credit hours from various universities in accounting and business. He has lived in Germany, Illinois, California, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming.

He belongs to The League of Utah Writers.

For Walt and for everybody else in his homeland, tax season is always approaching. It’s a certainty of life, as Benjamin Franklin put it. Franklin “married” the terms death and taxes. We can’t escape either one.

For writers, like everybody else, accounting for income taxes comes up annually, without fail. Death . . . well, it just comes up once per lifetime, thank goodness. So whether or not you made money writing last year, you probably paid taxes. As writers who desire to derive income from writing, it becomes necessary to get the most one can out of writing situations relative to taxation. It requires planning and knowledge. Walt decided he could help writers do just that. After all, he worked as Santa Claus for the IRS.

No, really. For twenty-six years, Walt, as an Appeals Officer for IRS, considered the appeals of disgruntled taxpayers--both individuals and businesses, often providing them relief from the exactions of ornery revenue agents, gung-ho auditors, and ruthless collectors. Within the IRS bureaucracy, such enforcement folks (the agents, auditors, and collectors) called Walt and his ilk Santa Clause. Not as a compliment.

So Walt knows what he’s talking about relative to taxation. Additionally, Walt is a retired Enrolled Agent who was authorized to represent taxpayers before the IRS.

Walt can provide a workshop tailored to the needs of those contemplating getting into or just entering the writing trade or business. He can help such individuals see how taxation can enhance their writing careers and decide what benefits writers are entitled to under the tax laws. He can help:

• Learn basic principles of taxation pertaining to businesses.
• Figure out how to take advantage of writing losses.
• Find out if your writing activity qualifies as a trade or business.
• Make certain you know what it takes to convince the taxman that you engage in writing for profit.
• Know about the business expense umbrella.
• Know what tax forms you need to file and how to fill them out
• And much, much more.

Walt wrote Making Expression Less Taxing, a Freelancers Tax Resource, which is available at Amazon as a trade paperback or as a Kindle eBook.

Alejandro has a lightning-like scar, on his butt. Although he'd like to wear it on his forehead he can't. He must lay low. Born in the desert when his parents crossed into the U.S. from Mexico fourteen years ago, he's "illegal" even though he's lived every single day in the U.S. So he stays to himself, hanging with his own kind. But he has a few others he trusts too. Like Crazy Bev, who runs the local playhouse and utilizes him in more and more productions. And Maggie, who loves acting and Alejandro. And Sedge, Alejandro's best bud. Mostly, however, he keeps his plans and activities hidden, protecting his family and obeying his parents. In his hoodie, he meekly endures taunts, ridicule, and threats from members of Grassroots Boots and like-minded people. Alejandro tires of always laying low. Yeah, things have soured: the economy, jobs, tolerance. Yet at school, he wins a what-it-means-to-be-an-American essay contest. And his mother has a baby girl. Additionally, Alejandro, who moves like a zippy fire hydrant, gets the chance to play soccer on a regular team, with a coach, uniforms, and referees. But as soon as Alejandro realizes he's an American no matter what others might say or do, his family falls apart. And Alejandro makes a trip of his own back to the border.
