Indiana to Offer New Film and Media Tax Credit

Indiana will begin offering a new Film and Media Tax Credit for television, film, music or digital media productions. It was approved in the 2022 legislative session. “Creativity is an essential ingredient to the vibrancy of any community, and this new tool will encourage artists to do their work here in the Hoosier state,” said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers. “By attracting media companies and their service businesses to Indiana, and by extension, continuing to diversify Indiana’s economic portfolio, it is my hope that we are enabling more of our talented young people to pursue careers that align with their passion, without having to leave home.”

Applications open August 5, 2022, for the Film and Media Tax Credit. “I’ve been advocating for an incentive like this for many years,” said filmmaker Angelo Pizzo, who wrote “Hoosiers” and “Rudy”. “Not only does this incentive make Indiana a competitive spot for media production, but it will go a long way in encouraging our talented graduates to stay within the state. I hope that this incentive will continue to grow.” Eligible media producers are encouraged to apply online beginning August 5, 2022, through October 31, 2022. Here’s a link for more information.
