Incentives Scorecard: Virginia Woos Productions With Refundable Tax Credits

Refundable tax credits, along with the possibility of discretionary grants awarded by the governor, keep Virginia on the radar of many producers. In addition to the financial benefits, filmmakers get a diverse state with mountains, beaches, fully restored colonial towns such as Williamsburg and a robust military presence — embodied by the Pentagon and the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
