Film Tax Credits Extended 10 More Years

Dave Donaldson, APRN – Juneau

Wednesday, the Senate approved a bill to continue funding tax credits for filming television shows and movies in Alaska.    Sponsor Johnny Ellis of Anchorage says the initial five years of the credits have been a success.

Ellis says the credits are only given after the money has been spent and the production has occurred in the state.  The bill passed with no opposition and next goes to the House for consideration.
