DECD: Digital Media & Motion Picture Tax Credit

Digital Media & Motion Picture Tax Credit


What happens when you combine ideal locations, emerging state-of-the-art infrastructure and generous resources with a competitive tax credit program?

{30% Tax Credits}

In 2006, the Connecticut General Assembly established a tax credit program to encourage the production of digital media and motion pictures in the State of Connecticut. The statute was amended in 2007 by Public Act 07-236 and again in 2009 by House Bill 6802.  

The legislation makes it possible for eligible production companies to receive a tax credit on a sliding scale of up to 30% on qualified digital media and motion picture production, pre-production and post production expenses incurred in the state.

We are currently in the process of updating our forms and guidelines to reflect recent legislative changes.  Please refer to New 30% Tax Credit Details for more information or contact us.
