NYS Incentives That Offer You Great Return on Your Investment


Please note:  The amount of credits available has increased from $240 million per year to $700 million per year starting in 2024 and lasting 10 years through 2034.  The Post Production credit has been increased up to $45 million of the $700 million annual allocation.  The base production incentive has increased from 25% to 30% of qualified production costs.  Qualified production costs have been expanded to include "above the line" costs including salaries of actors, writers, directors and up to two producers.  Inclusion of these above-the-line salaries is subject to a $500,000 cap per individual and limited to 40% of the total qualified expenses.
