Alberta Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit

  • Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit (IDMTC) applications have been made available as of October 23, 2018.

The  Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit (IDMTC) offers a 25% tax credit for labour costs associated with interactive digital media (IDM) activities to support growth in the interactive digital media industry, encourage corporations to stay in Alberta, and attract talented tech entrepreneurs to the province.

The program is available to corporations whose primary business is the creation and development of interactive digital media and gaming products.

Tax credit amounts are calculated based on a percentage of labour expenses directly attributable to the production of interactive digital media products.

Eligible corporations who hire employees from under-represented groups may also qualify for an additional tax credit of up to 5% of all eligible costs through the diversity and inclusion program component if all conditions are met.
