Big win for artists in the U.S.

Those of us who eek out a small profit, or, if we’re lucky, a small living, on art or handmade creations, have been granted a fairly significant victory by  the United States Tax Court. Read more about today’s ruling in the 2010 case, in which the I.R.S. accused Susan Crile, an artist and a professor of art at Hunter College, of underpaying her taxes. They said her work as an artist over several decades was “an activity not engaged in for profit.”
