Key Points to Know:
How does the tax credit/incentive program work?
When you buy tax credits, the incentive program has funds to attract and keep productions in Oregon and place paid interns on set.
Who can benefit from buying these credits?
Anyone with an Oregon state tax liability—which is everyone. You, your vendors, your business-owning friends...
Should I buy production tax credits?
We've heard it from multiple accountants—the answer is a resounding "Yes!"
Why should I buy these tax credits?
1. Save money: Get your taxes "on sale" for up to 10% off.
2. Support your local media production industry and professionals.
3. Choose exactly where the government spends your taxes.
What happens if I'm outbid?
If you are outbid and the entire $14 million of available credits has sold out, then your original check will be returned to you in a few weeks. This is actually a good thing for the industry! If we oversell the program, then we can ask for more incentive dollars the next year.
What if I owe less than I thought I would in taxes?
No problem! You have three years to use your tax credits (2019, 2020, 2021).
