Cover Story: The Art of Taxes
Estate planning can be a headache, but things get a bit more complicated for artists who have a collection of unsold works. How will the IRS appraise all the artwork and will some need to be sold off to pay off the estate tax? Other concerns abound, including what happens to the works and the artist's legacy. U.S. 1 contributor E.E. Whiting reports on realist painter Mel Leipzig's dilemma and what artists need to keep in mind.
U.S. 1's Dan Aubrey also reports on another legal thicket for artists: Copyrights.
Next U.S. 1 issue: April 22.
