JUNEAU, Alaska — Gov. Bill Walker this past week said he wasn’t sure the state could continue to afford a film tax credit program, given Alaska’s budget situation. But that program is just one in a myriad of tax breaks the state provides.
Rep. Steve Thompson, co-chair of the House Finance Committee, wants to take a closer look at the state’s so-called indirect expenditures, things like credits, discounts or exemptions, and have a discussion on which are still useful and which might need to be updated or scrapped.
