More Corporate Welfare in Memphis

Memphis politicians "creating" jobs by giving away the taxpayer's money to a few select corporate fat cats and keeping tax rates high for everyone else. Memphis has the highest property tax rates in the State.

I can predict with almost complete certainty that long after the politicians get their photo-op many of these jobs will NEVER be "created."


The Memphis and Shelby County Industrial Development Board
will hear payment-in-lieu-of-tax requests from two companies with a total of 80 new jobs.
