    Former Incentive Program

    Former Incentive Program

    Beginning in 2008, tax credits were used to lure production companies to the state, and then in 2012, a cash-rebate incentive program was instituted. The incentive program was eliminated on July 10, 2015 through legislative action. 

    If you seek information from any of our prior program years in order to complete the incentives claim process on your project please call us at (877) 477-3456 or (517) 373-3456, and we will gladly assist you.
