Georgia’s generous TV and film credits survived the 2020 pandemic intact. The state legislature tightened audit requirements but didn’t make any major changes that would scare off cost-sensitive film production companies.

With budget pressures in 2021, there is no guarantee the tax credits won’t face more scrutiny in the future, but according to a report by Monarch Private Capital, a new bill signed earlier this month by Gov. Brian Kemp “will provide more integrity and security for the Georgia Film Tax Credit Program.”

Atlanta-based Monarch works with large production companies to sell off their tax credits to third-party buyers that could use them. Marco Cordova, the firm’s director of film finance who wrote the report, said the bill should fend off some critics of the tax credits and hopefully “appease as many stakeholders as possible.”
