Can anyone tell me, as a U.S. citizen, if I take a gig in Canada (one-shot deal, run over there, do an after-dinner show, and return), do I need to file tax forms with the Canadian government? Thanks.

You do not need to file tax returns or have a work permit to do a gig in Canada as a US entertainer. I do not know the rules for longer term arrangements, but for occasional jobs you don’t need anything but a passport (or enhanced drivers lisense in some States) to cross the border.

I assume you are wanting to know how to handle the taxes. In general you must pay US taxes on income you earned abroad in the same way you pay taxes on income you earned in the United States.
Your tax person should be able to help at tax time. Just keep all your receipts from the job.

I know I'll have to pay taxes to the US government, but the question was about the Canadian government. There are even some states in the US that want you to pay their state tax if you do a gig in their state. So I was wondering if Canada would require my to file a tax form if I have a gig there.
