Comment of the Attorney Generalís Office
Regarding Iowa Film Office tax credit program
September 24, 2009
It is the Attorney General’s responsibility to determine the State's obligations and liabilities under the Film Tax Credit Program, and we are working on that intensively. The State's obligations and liabilities may not be determined solely by whether a contract has been signed by the parties, and statements by State officials to that effect are mistaken.
We understand the difficulties suspension of the program poses for companies doing business in Iowa, and we will weigh that carefully case by case as state officials determine how best to proceed.
