Buffett-owned firm seeking Mass. tax break

Billionaire Warren Buffett may be an outspoken advocate for higher taxes on wealthy Americans like himself. But his companies are not shy about trying to pay less in taxes.

Richline Group Inc., a subsidiary of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., has requested tax breaks from the state in order to invest in an Attleboro jewelry manufacturing plant. Richline has promised to create 100 new jobs and spend $3.6 million to upgrade the plant if it gets a little financial lift from the state.
