Helping Clients Qualify For The Connecticut Digital Media And Motion Picture Tax Credit
At Cooper Law LLC, we have also helped major producers qualify for the Connecticut Digital Media & Motion Picture Tax Credit. In this connection, we have formed a Connecticut entity for a production, obtaining the required Certificate of Existence.
We are deeply familiar with the deadlines that our clients must meet in order to receive these credits, including filing with the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, Film Division, not more than 90 days after the producer incurs the first Connecticut-based production costs or expenses.
We have also provided one of the opinions required in connection with obtaining bank financing for a film and formed a local subsidiary for the main provider of film completion guarantees.
