North Carolina has offered tax incentives to movie, television and commercial productions since 2005. The program has changed over the years but is set to expire at the end of 2014.

The following table includes productions that taped in North Carolina and applied for grants.

"Production spending" refers to the total qualifying amount of money spent against which a production can claim a credit.
"Cost of credits" reflects the amount of money given from the state of North Carolina to the production as a tax rebate. If the credits granted exceeded the company's tax liability in North Carolina, the difference was issued to the company as a check.

The number of people who worked on a job do not necessarily reflect full-time employees.
