Hawaii is a location that needs no introduction. Major films ranging from 1953’s “From Here to Eternity” to last year’s “Jurassic World,” and long-running TV series such as both iterations of “Hawaii Five-0” have used its iconic landscapes to add beauty and exoticism to their stories. The state’s 20%-25% refundable tax credit for qualified spending only adds to its allure.

25% Refundable tax credit for total qualified spending on neighbor islands (Big Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai)
