Audits are required for Film Tax Credits, based on the date the production was certified by the Department of Economic Development (DECD) and the amount of credit: 

  • 1/1/21:  All productions with credit more than $2,500,000.00
  • 1/1/22:  All productions with credit more than $1,250,000.00
  • 1/1/23:  All productions

If your production's Total Estimated Film Tax Credit meets the minimum credit amounts listed above, please complete this form.  If not, it is not eligible for a Mandatory Film Tax Credit Audit.  However, a Voluntary Film Tax Credit Audit may be requested.

  1. DEcD Authorization Certificate

After submitting a Mandatory Film Tax Credit Audit Application, you will receive an email with information on where to send the audit fee and the approved certification letter from the Department of Economic Development.  Both items must be received to complete your application.
