Porn Can’t Get a Break in Arizona

Arizona- A proposed tax break for motion picture and television productions in the state is moving forward at the state Capitol, but that corporate incentive will not include pornographic productions.

A state Senate panel on Thursday excluded “obscene” productions from that targeted tax break.

The Senate Finance Committee added language to two bills prohibiting “obscene” movie productions and magazine shoots from receiving tax credits from the state.

Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano and some top Republican and Democratic legislators favor tax credits for film and TV productions to help lure them to the state.

“Any options to help the film business in Arizona are welcomed,” said GOP state Rep. Michele Reagan, who is chair of the House Commerce Committee. “We are missing a big opportunity by letting films slip away from us and being shot in New Mexico or Nevada.”

Napolitano, Reagan and other tax break backers contend that other states are offering the incentives to attract motion pictures and Arizona is missing.

Critics, ranging from the conservative Goldwater Institute think tank to Democratic state Sen. Ken Cheuvront, counter that tax breaks will not offer a substantial economic payoff and question why the state should be offering incentives to Hollywood producers.
