Massachusetts State Budget
.
July 20, 2015
 .
On Friday, Governor Baker signed the state budget for FY 2016, which preserves the film tax incentive in its current form, without changes or amendment.
.
The Massachusetts budget recognizes the importance of film jobs to our economy, and avoids making changes to the film tax credit.
.
However, our work is not done to keep film jobs in Massachusetts and our industry strong and growing. The debate on the film production incentive program continues at the State House. The Governor’s bill, H.62, to repeal the law still sits before the Joint Revenue Committee. 
 .
MPC continues to work closely in a coordinated effort with our members, fellow industry stakeholders, and allies in the State House as the issues evolve around upcoming legislative activity.
Next Steps and What You Can Do
We will continue to advocate for our industry and against the Governor’s proposal H.62.
