West Virginia Film Tax Credit transfer applications

Todd Feathers filed this request with the West Virginia Film Office of West Virginia.


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the West Virginia Freedom of Information Act and the West Virginia Open Governmental Proceedings Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) Copies of all Forms FIIA-09 (Application for Transfer or Sale of Tax Credit) submitted to the West Virginia Film Office since Jan. 1, 2016. If the office maintains a database that comprehensively includes the information contained in those applications -- including the amount paid by the transferee to the transferor for the credit -- a copy of that database would satisfy this request.

I ask that all fees be waived for this request as I am a journalist employed by the Lowell Sun and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purposes.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Mr. Feathers -- My apologies for the delayed response. First, both of your emails landed in my junk folder, the first of which I didn't uncover until last Friday. And I've been sick this week and haven't been in the office. I'm hopeful I'll be able to return tomorrow. Could I please indulge your patience for an extension to reply by a few days. Thank you for your understanding.

Pam Haynes
Director, West Virginia Film Office

No need to apologize at all. I hope you feel better, and thank you for the help!


From: Haynes, Pamela J

Mr. Feathers, Once again, please accept my apologies for the delay. I ended up being out of the office much longer than anticipated with a horrific upper respiratory infection and this is my first week back at full steam. The response to your request will be prepared by the FOIA officer for the WV Department of Commerce and should only be a couple more days. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding. Best regards. Pam

From: White, Patricia J

Please find attached the response to your FOIA request. Thanks, Trish
