Now a criminal investigation into Iowa Film Office

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa Attorney General's office announced Monday it has launched a criminal investigation into the Iowa Film Office.

An outside audit has found that nearly half of tax incentives designed to encourage filmmakers to come to our state and hire local companies actually went to out-of-state individuals and businesses.

The inquiry released Monday found invoices and receipts for only 2 of the 22 projects that received tax credits. It also found some expenses weren't related to production, but received tax credits.
