Georgia Legislature Sides With Music Industry On Entertainment Tax Credit Amendment

Here is a re posting I read about certain developments here in the state if Georgia, I found it very interesting and very helpful and beneficial. I hope you do as well. It makes me consider the situation in other states?I will try to find out more about it as well as with other states. Any comments?
Georgia Music Partners (GMP) and The Recording Academy Atlanta Chapter successfully engaged the Georgia Legislature to add language to the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act that clearly shows that music produced in Georgia for qualified film and television productions is an eligible expense. This decision clears the way for the state and GMP to promote the tax benefits of music production here.

The bill was sponsored in the Senate by Chip Rogers (District 21) and in the House by Ron Stephens (Savannah), Matt Hatchett (Dublin), Butch Parrish (Swainsboro), Matt Dollar (Marietta) and Amy Carter (Valdosta).

“We are very happy to make Georgia home to music,” said Sen. Stephens. “We hope to have the very same success in music as we have in film productions.”

According to Tammy Hurt and Simon Horrocks, co-presidents of GMP, the language in the original 2008 law suggested a narrow interpretation of what would be considered “qualified” music productions. “By having the legislature rule in favor of music production in the state as a qualified expense, we now have confidence in marketing the business-friendly environment that Georgia offers the music industry,” said Hurt. “The state has seen a huge increase in film production since 2008,” said Horrocks. “The legislator’s clarification is the first step in doing the same for the state’s music industry.”

“This is great news for the state’s economy,” said Phil Tan, an Atlanta-based three-time Grammy Award music engineer. “This will enable local music-related business entities to have an additional marketing angle and attract record companies, artists, producers and other music makers to bring their projects here to Georgia. Hotels, restaurants and other local businesses will benefit from the added traffic as well.”

According to Billboard’s top 40 moneymakers of 2012 ranking, Georgia artists represent 18% of the worldwide top music moneymakers worldwide.

Originally created in 2008 the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act provides state tax credit for qualified production and post-production expenditures. The Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act offers an across the board flat tax credit of 20 percent based on a minimum investment of $500,000 on qualified productions in Georgia. An additional 10 percent Georgia Entertainment Promotion (GEP) uplift can be earned by including an imbedded animated Georgia logo on approved projects.
