Theater Groups Applaud Gov. Healey's Proposed Tax Breaks

Live theater owners, many of whom are still struggling to recover in the wake of pandemic-related shutdowns, may get a break under Gov. Maura Healey's new tax relief and budget proposals.

Healey’s new tax relief package proposes to establish a new credit for a share of payroll, production, and transportation costs of qualifying live theater productions at a cost of $5 million annually. In addition to the proposed tax relief, Healey’s proposed $55.5 billion budget invests a record $25 million into arts and culture through Mass Cultural Council, an independent state agency.
