[TV] Filming of Season Three of House of Cards Delayed Over Tax Dispute
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.22.2014



According to washingtonpost.com, the filming for season three of House of Cards has been delayed due to a dispute over tax break issue between producers of the show and the state of Maryland.

At this time, the show looks to be delayed until mid-June as the sides negotiate. The show reportedly received $11 million in tax credits for season one and $15 million for season two. The production company behind the show, Media Rights Capital, is asking for another $15 million for the third season, but only half of that has been offered. Maryland officials are saying that more money is impossible to give.

Maryland has spent more than $40 million in tax breaks for film and television production companies in order to entice them to film there; but now word is that they are running out of money. Media Rights Capital sent a demanding letter to Maryland Government asking for the money and are now threatening to break down the stage, sets and offices to set up in another state that can afford to keep them.

Charlie Goldstein, Media Rights Capital senior vice president has stated that he wanted to make the state aware that they're currently looking for other state in which to film on the "off chance that the legislation does not pass, or does not cover the amount of tax credits for which we would qualify."
