WHEN: Thursday, September 20, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
WHERE: National Boston Studios~115 Dummer Place, Brookline, MA
Join us for an expert panel discussion where we examine film & TV production tax incentives in the region, and give you some tips on how to file and get the most out of these lucrative tax breaks.
Film & TV tax credits have become a game changer in our industry. With some states offering over 35% in state tax credits and rebates, it’s just good business to do your due diligence on the available incentives, to make sure you’re getting your production dollars up on the screen where they belong.
And there are more factors to consider than just the size of the credit. Is it transferable, and if so, how do you broker a transfer? These questions and more will be explored in this informative discussion.
The panel will end at 7:30, but we invite you to stay with us for a discussion of best practices in budgeting for tax breaks, plus payroll tools and techniques to help you maximize your tax credit advantage.
Refreshments will be served at the break, and validated parking is available in the garage adjacent to the site. Attendance is limited, so RSVP now to reserve your place!
