Do Tax Incentives Bring Business? The state of Ohio is offering tax breaks to keep dozens of companies from leaving, to help them expand here or to attract them to move to the state. The Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved deals for 30 companies this month in the interest of job creation and retention. Eight Northeast Ohio companies will benefit from nearly $50 million dollars in breaks. On the next Sound of Ideas, do tax breaks deliver on their promises? Critics say they amount to corporate welfare. What do you think? Tomorrow at 9.
