The New Motion picture incentive bill puts Utah high on the list of places
film production companies will choose to produce new movies and television shows. Utah has had successful T.V. Series in the past including Everwood, Touched By An Angel, Promised Land and Cover Me. Having these continual shows developed 1000's of cast and crew in the Utah Film Industry
“The higher rebate will now make us more attractive to the studios and networks and more competitive with other states and countries,” said Marshall Moore, director of the Utah Film Commission.
The new law will boost the motion picture tax incentive from 20 to
25 percent of the dollars left in the state in the form of a fully refundable post performance tax credit or cash rebate. The Legislature also approved an ongoing tax credit fund of $6.8 million for the Motion Picture Incentive Fund (MPIF). Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert signed House Bill 99, Motion Picture Incentives Amendments, into law.
According to Governor Herbert. “The expanded motion picture incentive will enable us to position Utah and its talented motion picture and digital media work force to compete on a
global basis for the film and digital media industries. These are important industries to our economy’s future.”
Recent films that have received the incentive include all three “High
School Musical” movies, the Oscar-nominated “127 Hours,” and the
upcoming Walt Disney Studios’ feature film “John Carter of Mars.”
More than 800 films and television movies have been shot in Utah.
