Tax Credit Auction for the Oregon Production Investment Fund (OPIF)

  • Share:
Name: Tax Credit Auction for the Oregon Production Investment Fund (OPIF)
Date: September 24, 2018
Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
Support an industry and get a tax break!

***Through an upcoming online auction on September 24 for the Oregon Production Investment Fund, approximately $2.5M of Tax Credits can be purchased in $500 increments with a minimum bid of $475 (95%) per increment. Purchasers can bid on as many increments as they like. Please sign up for our Tax Credit Auction Newsletter by emailing us.***Did you know that the film, television, animation and interactive industry is now directly spending more than $200M and supporting more than 4000 jobs per year?

On top of that, a single television series will engage with as many as 300 different local vendors during a season, and some series will go for 5, 6, 7 and even 8 seasons (years) here in Oregon.

In addition, Oregon is now recognized as a place to create award winning content - from Emmys to Oscars and Cannes "Lions" to BAFTAs - and this helps bring in even more income to the state through increased notoriety and tourism.

And this is felt throughout the state.

Two of the Top 8 “Best Films of 2018 (Thus Far),”according to the New York Times, were shot here in Oregon in places like Harney County, Estacada and Newberg. We are proud to have had #OregonMade “Leave No Trace” and “Lean on Pete” called out by such a prestigious publication and even prouder to have the beauty and talent here in Oregon recognized in such a prominent fashion.

And all of this work is supported through the Oregon Production Investment Fund and that fund is dependent on the sale of tax credits, via online auction, to Oregon tax payers.

So, we wanted to make sure that you are aware of the second OPIF tax credit auction now set for September 24, 2018. The Oregon Department of Revenue will once again be conducting a tax credit auction for the Oregon Production Investment Fund (OPIF) with almost $2.5 million in Oregon tax credits available.

Online auction starts September 24 and runs through September 28.
