Whether it’s a movie, documentary, videogame or commercial, the production can take place here in Ohio. A variety of productions are occurring all across the state of Ohio, thanks in part to the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency. The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit provides a refundable, transferable tax credit of 30 percent on production cast and crew wages plus other eligible in-state spending. The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit was created in 2009 to encourage and develop a strong film industry in Ohio.
The Ohio Development Services Agency partners with five Ohio Regional Film Commissions around the state. If you have questions not pertaining to the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit regarding the filming industry, please contact your Regional Film Commission.
