Learn More about the Louisiana Film Tax Incentives Program

In 2002, the Louisiana legislature enacted the Louisiana Film Tax Incentive Act to induce production companies to shoot their film and video productions (i.e., movies, television shows, commercials, music videos, etc.) in Louisiana. This provides a tax credit incentive for qualified, Louisiana based productions. KPM Film Credit Advisors has the experience and resources to help you reap the benefits of the Louisiana Film tax incentive program.
