On our NYE gig....I was paid at the end of the night by check, and inside they slipped a w-9 form in without me knowing. We only play about 2-3 times a month and hardly make enough to pay taxes on that. We all have daytime jobs, and music is just a hobbie. How do you deal with owners about this. the check is not made out to the band, but me personally. I know the other bandmembers will not pay taxes, its been discussed before, and even dropped a venue because of it earlier this year. I was wondering if we asked for more money to compensate for the taxes, how much would that be 25-30%? If this venue wasnt a decent gig, we would just move on. The venue already has us booked for 4 nights into july this year. Just looking for ideas, and some experience in this.
No announcement yet.
