Incentives Scorecard: Hawaii Boasts Competitive Tax Credit

Aloha State rebate ranges up to 25%

From films like “Jurassic Park” to series like “Lost,” productions have long flocked to Hawaii to take advantage of both the jaw-dropping landscapes and the competitive tax incentives. The Aloha State also offers multiple filming resources and a crew base big enough to support three major projects at once. Additionally, Hawaii runs the only state-owned and -operated production complex in the U.S., the Hawaii Film Studio near Honolulu.
