Incentives Scorecard: Productions Trek to Oregon for Incentives

Oregon’s programs offer a 20% cash rebate on state-based goods and services, and an additional cash payment of up to 16.2% of wages paid to production crew. Unlike those of other states, these breaks are cash rebates, not tax credits. Also, Oregon has no sales tax, which immediately discounts all outlays by 7%-8%. Other assets: stunning landscapes throughout the state, and experienced crews in Portland, a hub of creative activity (“Portlandia” and Laika animation).
