Could Taxing the Film Industry Help Bridge New Mexico's Budget Gap? Eric Witt Speaks About Proposed Incentive Cuts
The House Ways and Means Committee voted Monday to cut tax incentives for filmmakers by $20 million for the current fiscal year that ends next June. The New Mexico Film Office website currently lists six film and TV productions taking place in Santa Fe, Taos, Las Vegas, Pecos, and elsewhere in northern New Mexico.
KSFR caught up with Santa Fe Film Office Executive Director Eric Witt yesterday afternoon to ask about the implications of the House vote.
