State to give out nearly $50M in film tax rebates

By Christopher Behnan • DAILY PRESS & ARGUS • March 3, 2009

The state will issue nearly $50 million in film incentive tax rebates for 35 films completed during 2008 — a list that includes “High School,” primarily filmed in Livingston County — according to a three-page Michigan Film Office report issued Monday.

Those 35 film productions spent $125 million in Michigan and created 2,800 jobs, the report states.

The report only provides these totals, rather than a break down per film, because film companies by law can request confidentiality regarding their budgets, the report states.
