Daily Journal Reports Tax Abatements Can be Tipping Factor

From the Johnson County Daily Journal:

When Mays Chemical Co. considered building a new facility for mixing and repackaging chemicals, such as glycerin for soaps, the tax breaks from Greenwood were part of what made the city an attractive location.

When the Indianapolis-based company chose to build in Greenwood, two of the deciding factors were the location in a business park near Interstate 65 and the nearly $550,000 in tax breaks Greenwood offered, according to Eric Gillispie, vice president and corporate controller.

“It’s not the only factor, but it’s an important factor when you look at the various costs,” Gillispie said.
