Media Production Facilities Development Program

The Media Production Facilities Development Program encourages the construction and renovation of media production facilities—including soundstages, animation facilities and game studios—by granting a sales and use tax exemption that covers their construction or renovation costs. It was enacted in 2009 and is also known as the Media Production Development Zone Act (MPDZA).


If you are interested in obtaining the exemption for a proposed facility, please read the plain-language Guidelines for Owners and Developers for an overview of the application process and the agencies you will work with along the way.

Then, for more detailed information, you may read the program statutes and rules.


Once you have read the program documents, call our office at 512-463-9200 to discuss your project, ask any questions you may have, and start the exemption process for your new facility.
