The Florida House of Representatives passed a bill today which raises existing tax breaks involving the entertainment industries. If the bill makes it to law, it will raise tax breaks from 15% to 20% for companies that develop within the state. The vote passed unanimously with a vote of 112 to 0.
Also reported is a 5% boost to products made within the off-season of June through November and another 5% boost to family-friendly titles (Games made for 5+ years of age).
The bill was meant to be focused on bringing the film industry to Florida but the credits will benefit game companies as well.
