Companies lined up for tax breaks in Mass.
Economic development panel to vote on credits for creation of about 1,000 jobs
More than a dozen companies are expected to receive tens of millions of dollars in state or local tax breaks in exchange for promises to create nearly 1,000 jobs, according to documents from a state economic development board. The board, the Economic Assistance Coordinating Council, is scheduled to vote on the tax breaks Tuesday. Potential beneficiaries include Vecna Technologies Inc., a Cambridge company that plans to add 220 full-time jobs; and General Dynamics Corp., a major defense contractor, which has proposed adding 100 jobs
