Time for Georgia to end tax credit welfare for Hollywood

Dec. 13, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Georgia legislature to consider proposals to eliminate tax credits for Hollywood in the upcoming session:

“Ending corporate cronyism is something that the left and right can generally agree upon, and corporate tax credits designed to help out of state or country industries are particularly noxious.  The entertainment industry in Hollywood has been particularly aggressive in seeking tax credit incentives from states like Georgia in order to enjoy the lower cost of film making that the Peach state provides.  As part of a broader campaign by Americans for Limited Government to spotlight corporate cronyism, we will be focusing upon the ever-expanding corporate welfare which Hollywood enjoys from the taxpayers of Georgia. It is time for the state legislature to end Hollywood welfare.”
