Gunther Introduces Legislation to Expand Empire State Film Tax Credit to the Hudson Valley

March 10, 2016

Hurleyville, NY - To boost film production outside of New York City, the 2013-14 State Budget included language to create an additional 10% film tax credit for “Upstate” counties. However, bizarrely, Hudson Valley counties, including Sullivan, Ulster, Orange, and Dutchess, were not considered “Upstate” for the purposes of the credit and have been unable to tap into this lucrative economic development opportunity. 

Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther (D, I,WF-Forestburgh) has introduced legislation (A.9415) to include Hudson Valley counties in the 10% Empire State Film Production Credit program.

WHO: Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther, Michael P. Hein, Ulster County Executive, and Ramsay Adams, Executive Director, Catskill Mountainkeeper 

WHAT: Promoting film production in the Hudson Valley with the additional 10% Empire State Film Production Credit Program 

WHEN: Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 3:30 pm

WHERE: Hurleyville Arts Centre 219 Main Street, Hurleyville, New York 12747
