Illinois Film Tax Credit Restored

Illinois Film Tax Credit Restored

Could it be the best 24 hours in recent Chicago TV/Film history? Within 24 hours, two of our anchor television series - CHICAGO FIRE and CHICAGO PD - were renewed for another season, and now, as of late Tuesday night, the Illinois Film Tax Credit has been restarted.

Per Fox News Chicago late last night... "Rauner announced late Tuesday he is restarting the credits known as Economic Development for a Growing Economy, or EDGE, and the Film Tax Credit."

Great news for all of Illinois, more to come, here's to record-breaking 2016!
