WECT put out this story yesterday. A sober look at what would happen to New Hanover County if the film incentives faded with the sunset: New Hanover County could lose more than $10 million annually in tax revenue if the state’s film incentives aren’t renewed. That’s according to Robert Handfield, an economist at NC State University. This includes $3.7 million in sales tax revenue, $2 million in direct sales tax revenue from film-industry workers, and $200,000 in room occupancy tax.
Handfield added, “The implications of the loss of the industry on local tax revenue will be substantial, and will drive further gaps in state and local tax revenues, increased unemployment, and the loss of an industry in North Carolina that is healthy and growing nationwide.” READ THE ENTIRE STORY
