Iowa movie industry receives a boost from tax credits

The Iowa business entertainment industry has received a boost from a two-year-old tax incentive. The incentive adopted in 2007 gives tax breaks to film projects.

Because of the incentive, more than 20 film projects in Iowa have benefited from $32 million in tax credits. Although the tax credit translates into a loss in direct tax revenue, the additional business has generated a net surplus of $810,000 for state revenue, according to a state economic analysis.

Other economists suggest that the tax credits have not only led to a net surplus in overall tax revenue but also have boosted total gross domestic product and employment figures.
