Join us at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7 at the Guild, when self-employment tax expert Joe Weatherby will tell us how to keep more of what we’ve earned.

He will let us in on what’s new for the year 2012, including increases in the alternative minimum tax exemption health savings accounts, and “significant changes” to schedules C, E and F.
Be there, and bring all your questions. The Guild is at 433 Natoma St. between Fifth and Sixth streets in San Francisco. The nearest BART station is Powell Street, and there is a parking garage at Fifth and Mission.
