Scoring & Soundtracks

For Film

If your film project qualifies for the film tax incentive, services for film music, including scoring, recording, and licensing, can be included in your film application if provided by a Louisiana resident or company. If your production does not qualify for the film incentive (such as low budget productions under $300,000 or productions shot out-of-state), film scoring and other music recording for soundtracks, if performed in Louisiana, may qualify under the sound recording program.

For Interactive

If your interactive project qualifies for the interactive tax incentive, expenditures for scoring and recording can be included in your interactive application. For projects not included under the interactive incentive program, scoring and other music recording for soundtracks may qualify under the sound recording program.

For Live Productions

If your live performance production qualifies for the live tax incentive, services for music, including scoring, recording, and licensing, can be included in your live application if these services are performed in state. For projects not participating in the live incentive program, scoring and other music recording for soundtracks may qualify under the sound recording program.
