Phase I: Eligible productions apply for tax credits.
Phase II: Applications with the highest-ranked Jobs Ratios submit required documentation.
Phase III: Credit Allocation Letters (CALs) are issued for approved projects.

Phase V: Once the audit process is completed, a Tax Credit Certificate is issued. Projects that rank in the top 200% will be notified to submit Phase II documents. A project’s Jobs Ratio is determined based on a mathematical equation using qualifying wages, qualified non-wage expenditures, the expected credit amount and "bonus points."  

Applications must be submitted online during specific allocation periods.

Phase l: January 22-24, 2024
Phase II: January 25-29, 2024
