On Tuesday, July 12th, dozens joined New York State Senator Marty Golden and Assemblyman Joseph Lentol on the steps of City Hall for a press conference to urge Governor Cuomo to sign the Empire Music Production Tax Credit into law.

The bill, which is sponsored by Golden and Assemblyman Joe Lentol, passed both houses of the legislature last month. If signed, those eligible for the tax incentive (companies who produce 75% of their project in New York state) will be able to include production costs under the credit’s provisions like studio rental fees, engineering, mixing, and mastering services.
