AMENDMENT applies to tax credit laws affecting small manufacturing for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2018, and before January 1, 2025. The amendment revises the definitions of “qualified full-time and part- time employee,” “qualified taxpayer,” and “manufacturing business, who hire 500 employees or less” for the credit against those taxes for portions of the wages paid by a taxpayer, engaged in a trade or small manufacturing business within a designated census tract, to certain employees who provide services for that taxpayer in connection with that small manufacturing trade or business. This bill would additionally expand the definition of “qualified wages” for qualified full-time and part-time employees within a designated area, including, but not limited to those engaged in manufacturing tangible products that are exported nationally or internationally to interested markets. Bill amends the existing tax code redefining film and television production as small manufacturing/ comparable to any tangible intellectual property that is sold and distributed to mass media, thus, including digital/film, stage work, art shows or commercial television as would be promoted and shown on social media venues such as HBO, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon.

September 24, 2013 – Bring Hollywood Home Foundation announce private film fund. We have investors to participate in a private film fund. However, until California has fair and equal tax credit incentives for independent, minority and women led productions, there is not an equal opportunity for investors to come into California to support Bring Hollywood Home Independent productions. 2016 we are urging equal tax credit incentives as we ask California lawmakers and the Governor for an even playing field.
