LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) Inspire program will host a webinar on tax preparation for adult industry workers on Thursday at 11 a.m. (PDT) led by FSC Industry Relations Advocate Lotus Lain with bookkeeper Jessie Hornby, tax preparer Lauren Fumagalli and Adult Industry Laborers & Artists Association (AILAA) founder Mary Moody.
“In addition to discussing and answering questions on tax filing issues, the group will speak to how performers can take advantage of forgivable loans from the PPP loan program,” a rep explained, and noted Fumagalli is “a veteran performer and IRS Enrolled Agent with 16 years of tax experience.”
Lain described 2020 as “a highly unusual financial year for many performers.”
“We’ve been getting so many questions online, we decided to put together an expert panel to discuss last-minute filing issues for 2020, as well as PPP loans and strategies for reducing your tax burden in the year to come.”
“Sex work is real work,” Lain continued. Adult industry workers “deserve the same resources and guidance as those who run mainstream businesses, and the same support from the government. This panel will help our workers understand how to access COVID support, better protect their businesses and legally reduce their tax burden.”
