ArtTable’s Professional Empowerment program series invites experts to share their professional experiences, knowledge and skills. Each session presents an opportunity to engage with and learn more about a topic, issue or skill that directly impacts the professional lives of our members. Please join us and Galina Portnoy, CPA, Director at Marks Paneth Accountants & Advisors for a discussion on issues of taxation in the art world. We will touch upon how similar art transactions are treated differently by the IRS depending on who is conducting the transaction (artist vs. dealer vs. investor vs. collector), art inclusion in estate planning, art transactions and crypto currency, among other essential topics!
