In an environment where production tax incentives are ever-changing and are an increasingly important factor in determining where film and television productions are shot, identifying the best, most financially advantageous locations for projects is often a complex challenge.
Our suite of intuitive, web-based tax incentive tools are designed to help producers and financiers compare how much film incentives are worth to a production across the United States.
- Explore detailed tax incentive information for each state with an interactive tax incentives map, categorized by ‘Rebate/Grant,’ ‘Refundable Tax Credit,’ and ‘Transferable Tax Credit.’ Select a state for a snapshot of the incentive percentage and the incentive type. Click on the snapshot for additional details like whether or not the incentive is refundable or transferable, the per project cap, minimum spend, funding cap, and more.
- Compare multiple states at one time to see how each state’s incentives match up side-by-side with a state comparison tool.
- Calculate an estimate for tax incentives and see what a production could qualify for based on your project type and budget details with an incentives calculator.
