BOSTON—Massachusetts has released its first-ever breakdown of more than a dozen categories of tax credits handed out by state government.

The report released on Monday by the Massachusetts Revenue Department shows more than $170 million in tax credits were awarded or issued during calendar year 2011.

According to the report, the film industry was issued more than 90 tax credits totaling nearly $38 million.

The state awarded nearly $50 million in Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits in 2011, the largest total of any of the 13 categories.
