California’s Film & Television Tax Credit program is occasionally analyzed, such as in the third party paper, “Do State Corporate Tax Incentives Create Jobs? Quasi-experimental Evidence from the Entertainment Industry”
However, the methodology used in that paper was found to have significant issues, in peer review conducted by LAEDC’s Institute for Applied Economics. LAEDC believes that the findings of this paper do not add to the discussion of industry tax credits, and cannot be cited as definitive analysis, due to these issues of methodology.
