Your math stinks

Sorry! That $15 million did not go "to the state." It went to all those people you listed, who provided goods or services. "The state" collected a very small portion of that money through taxes on the goods and services and income taxes.

But "the state" then writes out a check for $5 million of the taxpayers' money to the production company.

$2 million (+/-) in, $5 million out?

That's a good deal to the taxpayer?

The most entertaining part of this issue is that the blackmail never ends. As soon as one state or location raises their incentives, it starts a whole new round of '"We need more money!"

You people won't be happy until "the state" is paying the entire production cost.

I hear Canada is very nice this time of year...
