New Jersey currently offers these financial incentives to filmmakers, and the US Government has an incentive program as well:

Certain tangible property used directly and primarily in the production of films and television programs is exempt from New Jersey's sales tax. This tangible property includes the purchase of replacement parts for machinery, tools and other supplies, the purchase of lumber and hardware to build sets, the rental of picture cars, the purchase or rental of other types of props, and costs related to the repair of camera and lighting equipment.
