Los Angeles County has been trying to tax artists who work at home, citing them as a business. The lower house of the California State Assembly has passed a bill that would prohibit 85 municipalities from requiring permits, licenses or business taxes of artists, writers and other creative types who work from or at their residences. The bill is heading to the State Senate for its approval.
Also, the California State Assembly has given its blessing to two bills that would provide tax incentives for film and TV production in this state. Again, these bills must clear the State Senate, but the prospects for doing so look good. The two bills are meant to help quell runaway production by providing a 2 year tax credit of 10% on labor costs for work performed in California on motion picture and TV productions budgeted under $5 million.
Good news for small animation houses and independents.
