Louisiana Tax Incentives - Motion Picture Production Incentives:
Louisiana offers a 30% transferable incentive for total in-state expenditures related to the production of a motion picture. An additional 5% labor incentive can be earned on the payroll of Louisiana residents that are employed by a state certified motion picture production.
The incentives are fully transferable and Louisiana has no limit to the amount of incentives that can be earned by a single production.
Only money spent on your production costs within the borders of the state of Louisiana will qualify for the 30% incentive. That includes all services that are performed in Louisiana from residents and non-residents alike. Now, you have the option to transfer credits (incentives) to the state for .85 on the dollar and you will receive a check immediately.
