What form should New Jersey's subsidies take so that they can minimize the negative income tax impact on the recipients?
The purpose of this letter is to confirm with you (Mr. Glynn) our yesterday phone conversation. In which, I asked you for assistance in regards to a formulating a reinvigorated industry search program in the State of New Jersey. It is well known that the State of New Jersey has run an industrial recruitment program. As part as our recruitment activities, the state and various local governments offer financial inducements, which commonly take the form of direct subsidiaries such as land on which factories built, cash is used to construct new infrastructures or purchase machineries and equipment. I understand as happened in the case of the State of South Carolina when successfully the BMW located its plan in South Carolina. The strategy consisted in offering its assistance as a form of land and plant, whereas a competitive state offered to provide its assistance in the form cash and inventory. Moreover, after yesterday conversation I noticed that for BMW is was more convenience for tax purposes to stablish in South Carolina.
Therefore, I would like to know the tax consequences and advantages of South Carolina and in addition find out how it can be minimize the negative tax impact in New Jersey.
