Do moviemakers deserve a tax break?
Wisconsin's State Senator, Ted Kanavas, is proposing a bill that would allow tax breaks to filmmakers who chose The Badger State as the ideal location for their film. The proposed bill was discussed in an article on The Idea Shop wherein Sen. Kanavas states that the bill is not offering subsidies, rather lower taxes, and the state is not offering grants or loans, just forbearance. I think the film industry is on the tail end of those in need of tax breaks. Although a movie filmed in your area would bring in revenues, I think a different course of action needs to be taken to produce state revenue.
