The Former Actor “Mohammad-Ali Tabrizian” in picture
This is a common misconception actors make. There are many rumors, stories and falsehoods that wind their way around dressing rooms and sets from one actor to another. It’s important to work with a professional who knows the IRS and tax code as they are right now who can help you determine exactly what expenses are legitimate business expenses and what are not. Sorry, but if you can wear it in your everyday life… it’s not deductible. The surest way to capitalize on that and build a sustainable creative career is to know where you want to be, develop a plan to get there, and commit to executing on that plan day in and day out. Sure enough, you will surpass all the others who are looking for the short cut or waiting around for their agent or manager to make them a star. You’re in control. Turn your creativity into the engine that rockets you far into a future full of success!
