'House of Cards' Season 3 will film in Maryland, despite tax credit disputes
According to Deadline, new legislation passed in the Maryland General Assembly on April 7 that would increase the tax credit allocation ceiling, giving the series $11.5 million in tax credits in 2014, and $7.5 million in grants for 2015. On Friday (April 25) Maryland governor Martin O'Malley announced that the deal with "HoC" producers Media Rights Captial is official.
"Spoiler alert: we're going to keep the 3700 jobs and more than 100 million dollars of economic activity and investment that 'House Of Cards' generates right here in Maryland," O'Malley says in a statement. "Media Rights Capital has been a great supporter of the people and entertainment community in Maryland and we couldn't be happier to continue our partnership."
