Oregon offers a host of generous incentive programs to help your bottom line. Our incentive programs rebate:
- 20% of your Oregon-based goods and services
- An additional cash payment of up to 16.2% of wages paid to production personnel
Unlike other states' programs, these incentives are cash rebates as opposed to tax credits. This enables us to deliver you a check quickly and efficiently. Additionally, Oregon's lack of any sales tax on goods and services can immediately save you 7 to 8 percent.
For more information on the CASH rebates Oregon offers, visit Oregon Film.
With over 45 years of hands-on production, and an additional 20 years film industry experience, our team knows what a Producer or Location Scout needs to get the job done. The Central Oregon Film Office will assist local and visiting productions with facilitating permits, provide preliminary location scouting, and engaging the local workforce and vendor resources. We will also provide inter-agency assistance such as risk management for insurance liability and coordinate with police, fire and rescue services for the safety of the public during shoots.
Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf Islands, on the Southwest Gulf Coast of Florida in Charlotte County, is a slice of purely natural Florida. The harbor, the second largest in the state, has almost 100 miles of natural shoreline. Punta Gorda, a picturesque small town of 16,000, sits on its southern bank. In the western part of the county, 28 miles of white sand beaches line the Gulf side of several barrier islands. No building in the county is taller than five stories, giving a definite "old Florida" vibe to many parts of the county. Inland, there are wetlands and Cypress Swamps. Features produced in the county include Out of Time and Hoot.
As other destinations offer incentives from a local level up to a state-wide level, we can compete on the local level by offering attractive deals on exclusive services and housing for your crews and stars.
The Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism can assist with any questions and assistance with tourism partners that you may need. Contact Sarah Hahne or 760-322-8425.

All productions considering a film incentive rebate must be approved and have a signed contract before beginning principal photography.

Colorado Springs is a beautiful world-class city that has historically inspired artists and poets from around the world. Most notably known as "America's Mountain", Pikes Peak precipitated the creation of the song "America the Beautiful" written by Katharine Lee Bates in 1893 as she stood on the summit of Pikes Peak.
Nestled in the foothills beneath Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs is a thriving city with a downtown business district of modern high-rise buildings and wide side streets all splashed against the beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.
With a wealth of sprawling ranches, abandoned mines and unique rock formations amongst alpine splendor, locations are easy to come by in an area of rich history and immense beauty.
