Goa govt considering tax reimbursements for filmmakers
Entertainment Society of Goa Chief Executive Officer Manoj Srivastava said the Goa government is considering tax reimbursement to the filmmakers shooting in Goa.
Referring to an earlier announcement made by Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, Srivastava told indiantelevision.com that this was one way to promote Goa as a film destination.
“We are considering an arrangement wherein half of the tax amount would be reimbursed to the filmmaker after he produces the bills and the film is ready,” he said.
Answering a question relating to remarks made by eminent filmmaker Yash Chopra, he said filmmakers would be largely benefited if central taxes are relaxed. “I am echoing the sentiments of Yash Chopra who has also expressed a need of relaxation of taxes.” Srivastava said.
