If you are planning a film shoot, TV show or TV commercial, don't miss out on generous rebates offered by San Francisco to shoot in the city:

Location scouts and producers should take note of the "Scene in San Francisco" program. "Qualifying productions are eligible for a refund of all payroll tax and city fees up to $600,000 per production."

Also, the separate "California Film & Television Tax Credit Program" gives a 20-25% tax credit,

And there's a California state sales tax exemption:

On the Federal level, there's some nice (IRC Section 181) incentives too:

Any 100% writeoff is worth knowing about!
