Bill Aims to Expand Nevada's Film Tax Credit to $20 Million a Year

Posted: Updated:
Nevada lawmakers are considering expanding the state's film tax credit program after it was gutted to help attract Tesla to the state.

Democratic Assemblywoman Maggie Carlton presented Assembly Bill 147 to the Assembly Ways and Means Committee on Monday.

The measure would expand the state's tax credit for movie and television productions from $10 million over four years to $20 million every fiscal year.

Carlton presented a video to committee members showing film workers and actor Nic Cage touting the economic benefits of the program.

Lawmakers have already approved another bill, SB94, that would remove a cap that limits the state to awarding $10 million over the four years of the program. The bill allows the Legislature to adjust that number.
