NARIP member Tammy Hurt of Placement Music, also a board member of Georgia Music Partners, was instrumental in securing an amendment to the Georgia Entertainment Tax Credit. Benefits to music business professionals now include music production as an attributable expense for qualified production, a move which aims to make Georgia an even more attractive state for industry and creatives.
