    chew out your Senator and rep now about raising your taxes

    Pick up the phone and call them about raising your taxes, while increasing government spending! they gave Hollywood a tax incentive while screwing ordinary working americans!
    (Breitbart) – The Senate passed legislation meant to end the “fiscal cliff” crisis in the wee hours of the morning. And it seems Hollywood’s rigorous backing of President Barack Obama and his Democrat peers in the waning months of 2012 paid off.

    Section 317 of the freshly approved legislation includes an extension for “special expensing rules for certain film and television productions.” Congress first enacted production tax incentives favorable to the domestic entertainment industry in 2004, and extended them in 2008, but the deal was meant to expire in 2011.

    The fiscal cliff deal extends the tax incentives through 2013–even as payroll taxes rise on ordinary Americans.

    The original tax incentive applied to productions costing less than $15 million to make ($20 million in low-income areas). The 2008 extension applies to all films, up to a deduction of $15 million (or $20 million in low-income areas). The incentive is especially generous to television series; it applies to each TV episode.

    Hollywood players routinely beg the government to raise their taxes so they can pay their “fair share.”

    Yet the industry moves new productions to places where existing tax breaks help its bottom line. That means plenty of shows and films are shot in states like New Mexico, which feature highly favorable tax rates, as well as destinations north of the border with similar perks.

    Now Hollywood has used its clout to ensure that its generous tax incentives will continue in a time of fiscal crisis
