I’m Dave Talamas, president of Talamas Boston, a digital cinema and professional audio organization. The Massachusetts film tax incentive has created jobs in Massachusetts. At Talamas, we have seen exponential growth in this area, allowing us to grow our company and add new employees. However, these benefits are not limited to only industry-specific companies. Other diverse examples are Peter Fuller Car Rentals, which rents to features on a regular basis, as well as Mal Elfman’s Rugs and Flooring and Philip Rand Wire and Cable. There are many others as well.
Job growth is critical.
The tax incentive should not be repealed but should be strengthened to continue job growth in the
commonwealth. Do not diminish a growth engine that benefits all of us in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Keep the film tax incentive stable.
