house-of-cards-season-3-filming-maryland-tax-credits.jpg "House of Cards" will stay in its current home of Maryland when it begins shooting Season 3, despite disputes over the amount of money the state could grant the production in the form of tax credits.

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."
