Crist Recommends Increase in Florida Film Incentive
Gov. Charlie Crist recently sent a $2.7 billion budget increase recommendation to the Florida State Legislature, including $15 million toward tax incentives for film and television production in Florida, which would increase the production incentive program by almost $5 million.
Film and television production can have an immediate and massive economic impact on an area. Production in Jacksonville accounts for an average of over $14 million per film and $2.8 million per television show.
The Florida Times-Union has a summary of the budget recommendations in full. For more details, visit The People's Budget.
