Under the provisions of SB 871 (Ch. 18-54), California provides a new film and television production tax credit for tax years beginning January 1, 2020, through July 1, 2025. The current film and television credit expires in 2020.
The credit amount is either 20% or 25% of qualified expenditures for the production of a qualified motion picture in California, and the bill contains provisions for increased credit amounts for taxpayers that meet certain conditions.
