Film Tax Credit Update

As you know a budget rider included in the Senate budget would cripple the Film and Television Production Incentive. This would cap the amount of above-the-line salary that could be applied to the Film Tax Credit, driving film production away from Massachusetts, killing local jobs and hurting small business vendors that are a part of the film production ecosystem. 

The House and Senate are currently working on the final version of the budget and we want to prevent this measure from becoming law.

Films = Jobs State House Advocacy Day, June 14

This Wednesday, June 14, State House Day, we will be going to the Massachusetts state House to ask our legislators to preserve the Film and TV Production Incentive and not to make any changes to it. It is critically important that your legislators hear from you regarding the value that film jobs bring to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts!

Massachusetts Film and Television Incentive Update

Yesterday, the state Senate adopted an amendment (#38) to their state budget that proposes substantial and extremely damaging change to the film and television production incentive program. Most significantly, this amendment would limit the credit with a salary cap that would prevent major productions from filming in Massachusetts.
