Tax Incentives - Useful tax information for filming in Puerto Rico

Tax breaks / incentives

The big story with regard to Puerto Rico is a generous film and TV tax credit which was introduced in 1999 and then extended in 2010/2011.

Full details can be found here, but the headlines are: 40% production tax credit on all payments to Puerto Rico resident companies and individuals, 20% production credit tax credit on all nonresident qualified spending, including producers, directors, writers and talent, 25% infrastructure tax credit on development or expansion costs of studios, laboratories, post-production, animation and special effects facilities, transmission facilities and related infrastructure, preferential tax treatment for companies or individuals engaged in qualifying film and infrastructure projects or operators of studios and other media facilities.

Puerto Rico is very happy with its incentives, which are reckoned to bring $60-70m a year into the local economy.
