KSU lecturer: Georgia offers variety of entertainment-industry tax incentives
KENNESAW, Ga. (May 2, 2017) — Tyra Burton, senior lecturer of marketing and professional sales in the Coles College of Business, shared her expertise in a WalletHub article ranking the most fun states in America.
Should states provide tax incentives to attract professional sports teams and other entertainment draws?
"I can speak to Georgia's experience in luring the entertainment industry here," Burton said.
"Georgia offers a wide variety of tax incentives for entertainment industries ranging from film to music to gaming. In 2016, film and television productions generated an economic impact of over $7 billion with approximately $2.2 billion in direct spending. The tax incentives make this investment possible and provide jobs and economic stimulus to the state."
