NEW YORK STATE Extends Production Tax Incentive Program through 2019 - go to NYS Tax Incentives

Change to Production Tax Credit Audit Procedures

(July 2014) The overwhelming success of the New York State Film Production Tax Credit under Governor Cuomo has brought record breaking numbers of film and television productions – and tax credit applications -into the state.

To help address the influx of final applications, Empire State Development (ESD) has announced that an optional, voluntary program for third party review of final applications will be made available to applicants to the program. Slated to go into effect January 2015, the new procedure will allow productions that choose to participate to have their final applications reviewed by outside CPA firms according to agreed-upon procedures (AUPs) established and published  by ESD.
