@jimsz Thanks! Do you mean they will save a couple of hundred dollars or thousands of dollars ? Has anyone compared accountant and using Turbo Tax ?

question about tax?
Does anyone know any resource on paying tax as an illustrator. Such as what are some reasonable and legit compensation that I can write-off, besides material and book cost, etc. It is almost tax season again, and tax in the U.S. for self-employed is ridiculously high, 40%-50% of my income goes to all kinds of tax directly. I wonder if I ever missed something that perhaps can be written-off, or if there is any article or resource that helped you on preparing for tax.
RE: how flexible are trade-book deadlines with big publishers?
Thank you so much for your insights and the tip! Will make sure if I need more time, I talk to them well in advance.
how flexible are trade-book deadlines with big publishers?
I have recently sold a book to a big publisher, and I'm curious how flexible are deadlines for trade books (not educational books) with big publishers. Let's say if the given period for illustrating is 4 months, is it ok to return everything in 4 months and two weeks. Sometimes publishers would want revisions, and it may take extra time.
