Firms line up for Mass. tax breaks

They promise construction, jobs in return

More than a dozen companies have asked the state to give them millions of dollars in tax breaks in exchange for new construction projects and other investments, and creating some 1,500 jobs in Massachusetts.

The Commonwealth’s Economic Assistance Coordinating Council will meet Wednesday to vote on the tax breaks for the 15 companies. Though officials declined to disclose how much state aid has been requested, the companies could also receive a combined $22.4 million in related property tax cuts from the communities where they are located. In exchange, the companies said they are investing nearly $200 million in improvements at their sites, and pledged to create 1,417 jobs in Massachusetts.
