Iowa Attorney General filed suit against filmmakers

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--   The Iowa Attorney General's office says it will sue several filmmakers who received millions of dollars in tax credits to make movies in the state.

A state audit of the Iowa Film office identified about $25 million in improper tax credits issued for 22 projects.

Reports found that film office officials didn't verify that tax credits sought by filmmakers and investors were justified.

The Attorney General's office filed the lawsuit shortly after that report was released. It's seeking at least $5.5 million in damages.
