KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin taxpayers might give Amazon.Com a total of over $10 million, if the online retailer meets its job creation and production goals in Kenosha County.
Last November, Amazon was awarded up to $7 million in state tax credits. Now, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the company could get another $3.3 million for a second facility which is part of its new distribution and order shipment center in Kenosha.
If Amazon spends $155 million on the project, and creates 1,250 over the next three years, officials say the company would be eligible to get $10.3 million in tax credits from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
