The Canadian Arts Coalition has created a Committee on Taxation and the Artist in partnership with many NASO organizations including CARFAC, IMAA, and the Canadian Dance Assembly. April Britski of CARFAC National has been leading this committee, with support from Co-Chair Kate Cornell. The Committee is focused on the fair treatment of professional artists regarding taxation. The Committee is in regular communication with the Canada Council for the Arts and with senior officials at the Canada Revenue Agency. This significant file is moving quickly and the government is listening.
If you are an artist who has been reassessed and/or audited by the Canada Revenue Agency, please share your story with the Canadian Arts Coalition or your discipline-specific national arts service organization. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
