The Massachusetts Film Tax Credit has been dramatically
Because under our new law, studios, major producers and
filmmakers–who either shoot at least half of their movie or spend
at least half of their production budget in the Commonwealth–are
eligible for a tax credit equal to 25 cents for every new dollar of
spending they bring to Massachusetts. No caps. No limits. No pre-
authorization. No pre-certification.
This credit is not just for big Hollywood moguls. With the spending
threshold lowered to $50,000 and with “digital media projects”
now eligible, Massachusetts has extended the benefits of the film
tax credit to thousands of locally based, small independent and
documentary filmmakers — key elements of our ever-expanding
Since 2006, The Walt Disney Company has shot four major
features here. Columbia Picture has shot three. Paramount
Pictures just finished shooting a major production here, with
another on deck. All in all, 25 major productions have shot in
Massachusetts in only three years.
