Artist’s Income & Expense Excel Spreadsheet


This is the spreadsheet I use to track my income and expenses, using category headings that TurboTax Self-Employed asks for when I’m doing my taxes. It’s a workbook with a sheet for each month PLUS a spreadsheet for sales taxes. If nothing else, this is worth every penny of the $3 for the sales tax spreadsheet alone. I file my sales taxes annually, and inputting them to the ATAP system by county and city was incredibly tedious before I started using this sheet. You’re welcome to modify it to suit your needs.

An income and expense spreadsheet for artists. It uses the TURBO TAX Self Employed categories that I most often use in my own business. You can change the headings to match the ones you prefer to use if these are not suitable. It is geared as it is for Arkansas data.

The spreadsheet calculates the columns and has a final total to indicate each month profit or loss. The last sheet in the workbook is for keeping track of state sales/use taxes. There are columns for overall income to the state, the counties, and cities. A check-sum lets you know at a glance if your numbers are all there. This is especially useful if you have some sales to counties but no city tax was collected because the location was not within a city.

The sales tax sheet is for Arkansas, but you can change the headings to account for your own location cities and counties. The numbers do not self-populate in this sheet, so you’ll still have to add up the Arkansas sales each month to input that data. But the numbers do calculate on the sales spreadsheet itself to give you totals for each city, county, and total for the state. This makes it MUCH easier to keep track of what you need file with ATAP if you’re on a quarterly or annual basis with them.

All of the counties or cities in Arkansas are not listed, only the ones I’ve used so far. You can add more columns for more cities as you need them.

  • I’m not an accountant. This is just a tool I created to use for my business and I’m sharing it with you. You can modify to fit your business needs if you like.
