Wisconsin offers 25% Tax Break for Developers

Joystiq reports (via an unlinked press release) that folks like Raven, Human Head, and Frozen Code Base will get a tax break. Since Joystiq didn't republish the press release, and I didn't get a copy, I have no idea what that 25% is applied to, or who sponsored this legislation.

It's the same law that is giving Johnny Depp a tax break for filming in WI. They included video game developers in the list of the kinds of businesses that are eligible for the credit.
