Next week, the state is holding two Tax Credit Review Panel meetings.
Tuesday, December 15, 2009 from 9 am – 12 pm
Kirkwood Center for Continuing Education, Room 159 D and E,
7725 Kirkwood Blvd SW
Cedar Rapids, IA
Wednesday, December 16, 2009 from 1 pm – 4 pm
Urbandale Public Library, Meeting Room A/B
3520 86th Street
After these public meetings, the panel will report recommendations to the Governor for each tax credit program, including oversight, accountability, transparency, public reporting, cost-benefit, and which programs should be continued, curtailed and/or eliminated.
IMPA has accepted an invitation from the Governor to present on the impact of the Iowa Film Tax Credit Program. IMPA will be conducting a five minute presentation at the Urbandale meeting. One of the key points, we will make is that production jobs are “high quality.”
In addition to the presentations of stakeholder groups, the Review Panel will also take general public comment in two forms:
1. Through a public comment period at the end of each meeting
2. Through a comment form which is currently available on the Governor’s website,
