Current Bill Summary

SB 400 - This act modifies provisions of the film production tax credit program by lowering the minimum expected in-state budget expenditure, from $300,000 to $50,000 for qualified film production projects less than thirty minutes in length or to $100,000 for a project longer than thirty minutes, for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2008. The act removes the limitation on the amount of tax credits which may be issued annually per taxpayer for all tax years beginning on or after December 31, 2007. The annual aggregate cap on all tax credits certified under the program is increased from one million five hundred thousand dollars to ten million dollars.

The provisions of this act will automatically sunset in six years if not re-authorized.

This act is similar to House Bill 360 (2007).
