Colorado Photographer Sparks National Change

Denver photographer Susan Goddard (ASMP Colorado) came to the board some months ago with a comprehensive look at how bad the National Find A Photographer (FAP) service has gotten. Many of you participated in chats on the the National boards where members from all over discussed and refined Susan's ideas. So, at long last, the change is coming!

From ASMP President Todd Joyce's wrap-up of the results of the National Board Meeting:

"Find a Photographer — Changes are coming. As we work to redesign the current ASMP website, we are looking to update FAP. Shawn Henry and Greg Kiger have been working to solicit feedback from users to make the site more buyer friendly. When changes are made to the ASMP site, we will also need to have members upgrade the size of images. At that time, we will also be making some changes to FAP. Upgrades in technology and a better understanding of learned behavior in searches has made it possible to make FAP more user friendly. Members have asked for more FAP promotion. Making it more usable and more visible should help it become a much better service for us all."

Join D/P Denver Media Group and ASMP for an evening of Colorado use tax liability information, tax-season advice, accounting tips, and answers to your questions about bookkeeping, incorporation and, of course, what you can deduct this year. Rich Hartfield from Hartfield, Sonnier & Johnson PC will explain changes in tax law and address your tax and accounting questions.

Caron Notarmuzi, Colorado Department of Revenue will speak about the increasing number of businesses owing use tax in Colorado. And how the Colorado Department of Revenue has developed a special use tax class that contains information about the use tax liabilities for those who own businesses in Colorado and for those making individual purchases too. "Many individuals believe the laws that apply to businesses do not apply to them which is one of the myths surrounding this tax."
