It is now in the Union Master Agreement that all performers be prepared to supply the paperwork required for productions to file for BC tax credits.
Productions require that all people working on set bring proof that they are a BC resident.
The shows get a tax credit back (money) from the BC government for hiring people who live in BC.
This is important information for the accounting departments.
