Project TD

The PDGA is neither a tax firm, nor a law firm.  We cannot give you tax advice or legal advice, and tax and legal professionals can’t ethically give non-clients advice, either (so we can’t just ask our accountants and attorneys to write this).  However, we can give you a basic, academic framework to help you understand, as a TD, how the IRS taxes sole proprietors engaged in business.

However, there are options available for tournament directors when it comes to accommodating more players into events.

Here are a few ideas for maximizing the number of players at your event:
