Today the Louisiana Department of Economic Development in conjunction with the Office of Entertainment Industry Development released a high-level overview of the changes made to the Louisiana Motion Picture Investor Tax Credit Program during the recent 2015 legislative session.

It is important to note that some changes are effective July 1, 2015, while others are effective beginning January 1, 2016. It is also important to review all of the recent changes carefully, as some of the new legislation may be applied retroactively, even to those productions which have received initial certification letters from the State of Louisiana prior to July 1, 2015.
