Tax-Free Income for Filming at Your Home?

According to film location scout Wilson Wu, the “rent” or “location fee” earned by a homeowner for a film shoot is free from federal taxation as long as you don’t have more than 14 film shoots in a  tax year. (Check with your tax advisor to see if you qualify!)

Good deal, eh? Especially in this economic time when a location fee can easily pay for a whole month’s mortgage. We’ve assisted location scouts with residential, commercial and municipal properties in the last few years.

Are you interested in offering up your property for a film crew to use? Occupants of a home used for film shoots must be comfortable with the “intrusion” of a film crew and must be able to stay “out of the way” while filming is in progress.

    Marshall & Felie, we put out a broadcast that we’re in search of a 50’s-70’s ranch-style tract home with hardwood floors in the master bedroom. We sent the location scout to the Woodland Estates last evening. Might you have been interested?

  3. I would like to talk to you about filming our house. Please call me at 510-909-5213 to discuss further. If we are not a good fit for this project, maybe another one. Thank you.
