Could Georgia become the latest destination state for video game developers and filmmakers?
Elected officials hope so.
As reported by the Macon Telegraph, Georgia’s House of Representatives unanimously voted yesterday to pass a bill extending tax incentives to movie and game production:
House Bill 1100 would give movie, TV and video game producers up to a 20 percent income tax credit on spending of at least $500,000, more than double the current 9 percent tax break.
Bill sponsor Rep. Ron Stephens (R) noted that Georgia lost out on the Ray Charles biopic, Ray, due to a superior incentive package offered by Louisiana.
