Tax or social insurance relief

The state of Connecticut’s Film Production Infrastructure Tax Credit is available to a taxpayer that invests in a state-certified entertainment infrastructure project. The purpose of the credit is to help establish a film and digital animation industry presence in Connecticut by incentivizing capital investment in plant and equipment for pre- and post-production facilities and investment in educational programs that produce the workforce needed by the film and digital animation industry. To qualify for a 20% tax credit, your production capital project must spend at least $3 million to provide buildings, facilities or installations needed to operate in Connecticut.

One recipient of these credits was ESPN, Inc., which on October 7, 2014 received a $12,138,677 credit.
