General Information
For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2004, Tax Law sections 24 and 210.36 provide for tax credits for the film and television production industry. The Empire State film production credit (also referred to simply as the film production credit) is available to taxpayers subject to tax under Article 9-A (general business corporations) or Article 22 (personal income tax) through 2013. This form is for taxpayers subject to tax under Article 9-A. Those subject to tax under Article 22, complete Form IT-248, Claim for Empire State Film Production Credit. The credit is based on the qualified production costs paid or incurred in the production of qualified films and television shows. The credit may not reduce the tax due below the fixed dollar minimum tax. Any amount not used in the current tax year may be refunded or credited as an overpayment to next year's tax. No interest will be paid on the refund. Production costs used as the basis for allowance of this credit or used in the calculation of this credit cannot be used to claim any other credit. The amount of credit allowed for the current tax year is allocated by the New York State Governor's Office for Motion Picture and Television Development. Attach a copy of your certificate from this office for the credit allowed. For rules and regulations regarding the credit, contact the New York State Governor's Office for Motion Picture and Television Development at nyfilm@empire.state.ny.us or call (212) 803-2330.

New York S corporations
New York S corporations will calculate an amount of film production credit. However, the S corporation may not use the film production credit against its own tax liability; instead, the credit is passed through to the shareholders to use against their personal income tax liabilities on their New York State tax returns. New York S corporations complete only lines 1 through 5. Include the line 5 amount on Form CT-34-SH, New York S Corporation Shareholders' Information Schedule, which is filed with your New York State corporation tax return. Attach a copy of Form CT-248 to your Form CT-3-S, New York S Corporation Franchise Tax Return. Provide all shareholders with the amount of their pro rata share of the film production credit calculated. The shareholders will file their own Form IT-248 to claim the credit on their New York State personal income tax returns.
