Songwriters in Los Angeles and Nashville can dread tax time a little bit less thanks to the National Music Publishers Association.
The NMPA S.O.N.G.S. Foundation (Supporting Our Next Generation of Songwriters) has announced it will continue its partnership with H&R Block to provide free tax prep services to songwriters in L.A. and Nashville.
The program is part of the Foundation’s effort to provide direct assistance to working music creators. Writers wanting to take advantage of the free service or wanting more information can find it here.
“Our goal as a foundation is to help songwriters succeed at what they do best and often taxes are one of the most stressful and distracting things a creator must contend with. We hope LA and Nashville songwriters utilize this free service which should alleviate stress and free them up to create the music we love,” says NMPA S.O.N.G.S. Foundation President, David Israelite.
Launched in 2015, the NMPA S.O.N.G.S. Foundation supports songwriters through funding educational programs, direct financial assistance and services and through partnerships with organizations to enhance opportunities for music creators. The Foundation has supported She Is The Music, partnered with the National Endowment for the Arts, and provided grants and scholarships to universities including Belmont, LA College of Music, MTSU and Howard University, among other initiatives.
