Tax credits for filmmakers become Nevada law

Tax credits for filmmakers become Nevada law

CREATED Jun. 12, 2013

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Filmmakers now have more reasons than the rugged mountains and fabulous Las Vegas to shoot their movies in Nevada.

Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a bill into law that grants transferrable tax credits to major filmmakers in an effort to bring a new industry to the Silver State.

The program is a four-year test, so lawmakers will have the opportunity to reverse course.

The tax credit bill was one of 45 pieces of legislation Sandoval signed Tuesday.

He is expected to sign or veto every bill before him by Friday.
