GOP tax reform bill singles out violent video game devs and publishers

Quote:
The GOP's tax reform bill contains language that seeks to prevent companies that make violent games from an R&D tax credit designed to benefit U.S. industry.

In "The Tax Reform Act of 2014", created by the House Ways and Means Committee, the drafters of the bill include language that specifically excludes some game companies from receiving "an improved, permanent R&D tax credit, finally giving American manufacturers the certainty they need to compete against their foreign competition who have long had permanent R&D incentives."

One provision of the bill specifies "preventing makers of violent video games from qualifying for the R&D tax credit."

There were no details given on who would determine what constitutes a "violent" game and how the tax credit would affect game companies which manufacture both violent and non-violent games. For instance, would 2K Games be excluded from the tax credit because of Grand Theft Auto or be able to qualify because of non-violent fare like NBA 2K14 or the Civilization series?

So, while the Supreme Court determined that games are protected as free speech, it appears that the game industry still has a way to go in getting respect in Washington

At the end of the day the Government don't put taxes out to prevent or deter, they put them out to make money and use stuff such as our "safety" as an excuse.

A d*ckhead in a car is a d*ickhead in a car regardless of if he/she has road tax or not. If said d*ckhead is going to crash, d*ckhead will crash. No amount of road tax will stop them.

Screw taxes.

Well that is stupid. I don't understand these people and their way of thinking at all. Violent movies are totally okay, but games? Oh no, they're creating murderers/violent persons everywhere!

Conservatives, and perhaps politicians in general, should stay out of realms they do not understand. How many rich white senators do you know actually PLAY video games at all? Probably none, if I had to guess. I guess they like to ignore the studies that violent media does not necessarily correlate to violent behavior. (There's a cool abstract study link if you're curious)
