Ohio's tax incentives for Chinese company Fuyao total nearly $10 million
The tax incentive is supposed to reward the company for creating jobs

In The Region:

The state of Ohio has approved part of an incentive package for Fuyao, the Chinese auto-glass company coming to the former GM Moraine plant south of Dayton. The job creation tax credit is meant to retain jobs in Ohio, but the incentives does not always work out that way.

The idea behind the Job Creation tax credit is to give companies a break on taxes, if they create new jobs.

Fuyao’s planning to bring in more than 800 jobs, which would mean more than $32 million in annual payroll.

If the company succeeds, the state will give Fuyao a tax discount totaling almost $10 million over 15 years.

Economic development officials say incentives like this are a way to compete with other states. Kristi Tanner is with JobsOhio.

"JobsOhio started working with Fuyao not quite a year ago, and they could have selected any state," Tanner says. "They could have selected any site."

A New York Times analysis found Ohio spent about a tenth of the state budget from 2006 to 2011 on tax credits, grants and other incentives for businesses.

But that has not always worked to retain jobs: GM, which pulled out of Moraine in 2008, had been one of the largest recipients of government tax credits in the state.

The Fuyao tax credit requires the company to stick around for at least 18 years.
