Nova Scotia Changes Film/TV/Digital Tax Credit

The Nova Scotia government has announced changes, effective December 1, 2010, to its Film Tax Credit and Digital Media Tax Credit:

Residency requirements for both credits were changed so that someone only has to so be a resident in the province during the production period. The total production cap for the Film Industry Tax Credit was also removed.

Film Nova Scotia has additional details, and the government’s own websites for the credits can be found here (Film Tax Credit and Digital Media Tax Credit).
