Film industry does cost taxpayers through incentives

Duncan – A recent letter writer insisted the film industry in B.C. doesn’t cost taxpayers a dime.

In reality there is a BC Commission that oversees attracting this industry and offering tax incentives. The basic tax credit is 30 per cent plus additional location credits of six per cent and visual effects credit of 17.5 per cent and a federal credit of 12 per cent.

How is this scheme not costing taxpayers when it pumps money into the industry?
