IEDC Offers new Film & Media Tax Credit to Discover Lawrenceburg

The City of Lawrenceburg, Indiana & the Indiana Economic Development Corporation are proud partners to assist film and media outlets with a premier, internationally acclaimed river city landscape for all promotional opportunities.  While major tri-state metropolitan cities often take center stage, smaller cities such as the City of Lawrenceburg have a small town feel with large city amenities, exceptional bourbon history, architecturally vibrant downtown and award-winning recreational outlets uniquely primed for production markets. You are where you want to be in Lawrenceburg!

Indiana is offering a new Film and Media Tax Credit for film, television, music or digital media productions. This tool will help build a robust, competitive and sustainable media industry and infrastructure while attracting new investment and tourism to the state. The Film and Media Tax Credit will provide an incentive to members of the creative economy to film or record qualified media productions in Indiana, encouraging student, amateur and professional crews to leverage the state’s urban, rural and natural assets. The incentive, established in the 2022 legislative session by Senate Enrolled Act 361, offers an income tax credit of up to 30 percent to help offset certain production expenses, such as acquisitions, filming and sound, labor, and story rights. Additionally, production crews and talent staying with accommodation stays of 30 consecutive days or more may be exempt from the County Innkeeper’s Tax, further incentivizing Indiana as a production destination. Eligible media producers are encouraged to apply online beginning Aug. 5, 2022, through Oct. 5, 2022. For more information, visits the Indiana Economic Development Corporations website.
