The state Department of Revenue issues two sets of data on the state’s film incentive program.

One involves the “cost of credits,” which relates to claims made by film production companies. It is tracked on a calendar-year basis.

A second set is the actual cost to the state’s general fund, which relates to refunds issued to film companies. It is tracked on a fiscal year basis, which ends June 30 of each year. Here are the numbers for the past five time periods covered:

Tax credits claimed

Time period – Cost of credits

Jan.-Dec. 2013 – $61.2 million

Jan.-Dec. 2012 – $83.4 million*

Jan.-Dec. 2011 – $32.6 million

Jan.-Dec. 2010 – $9.3 million

Jan.-Dec. 2009 – $7.7 million

(*In April 2013, the Department of Revenue reported this figure as $69.2 million. It has been revised twice as claims continued to be processed.)
