CHARLOTTE, NC (CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL) — Not to worry, filmmakers and TV commercial producers. North Carolina will have something for you after the state's existing film incentives expire later this year.
The question is what those incentives will look like, NC Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker says.
Plans are to have legislation ready for the short session of the General Assembly, with hopes that there will be no gap in state film incentives.
“I am encouraged and optimistic” about the film industry discussions, she said today in Charlotte. The N.C. tax credit, which provides a 25 percent tax break, will expire on Jan. 1, 2015, unless it’s renewed.
