The National Capital Area Chapter of the American Translators Association invites you to participate in our Business Development program on October 14, 2006 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Regent University, 1650 Diagonal Road, 5th Floor, in Alexandria, Virginia.
No matter how long you have been in business, it is crucial to make sure that you take full advantage of the benefits, and avoid the pitfalls, of income tax rules. This seminar offers a great opportunity to learn more, or to review your knowledge, of the intricacies of income tax rules with an expert certified public accountant who specializes in advising one-person businesses. Christopher Inglese will discuss the most important deductions and expenses for freelance language professionals as well as tax issues that apply to all professionals.
9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Registration, Coffee and Pastries
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Presentation and Lunch
2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Networking Session
This four-hour presentation will include an overview of the different tax entities under which one can conduct business and a detailed explanation of how to account for many various expenses and deductions (for example, business travel and conference fees, auto expenses, medical expenses, computers and software, use of a home office, interest on business loans, retirement contributions, professional fees, tuition, self-employment tax and health insurance). It will provide information on how to minimize estimated tax payments while avoiding penalties. It will also cover issues of interest to growing businesses that are employing translators and outsourcing translation work to subcontractors. This seminar is based on the popular two-day six-hour course, "Tax Strategies for the One-Person Business," taught for business development programs in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Christopher Inglese is a Certified Public Accountant and president of Christopher J. Inglese, P.C. Previously, he held positions as Senior Tax Consultant and Senior Auditor at Touche Ross & Company (currently Deloitte & Touche) in Washington, D.C. He has over 25 years of experience in the tax accounting field, specializing in income tax planning for small business corporations and self-employed individuals.

He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants.
Each participant will receive Christopher Inglese’s guide, “Tax Strategies for the One-Person Business.”
