In the 2015 legislative session, Kentucky revised HB 340, which amended the KY Film Tax Credit. Since the passing of HB 340, dozens of out-of-state productions have been produced or are currently being produced in Kentucky. The KY film industry is now in a critical stage where the local infrastructure must expand to fully meet the challenges implicit in a growing market. The film industry must mature — and a key player in this growth is the KY Film Commission.
On February 12, 2015 the Kentucky House of Representatives passed a new bill that would restructure the current Kentucky film tax incentive package offered by the state. In short, the bill would raise the incentive package from 20% of qualified expenditures to 30% and offer an additional 5% incentive for Kentucky resident labor. The bill would also lower the minimum spend threshold from $500,000 to $250,000.
