1. September 2014 Viewpoints Survey - State Tax Credits

Please take a few minutes and help the Cincinnati Business Courier with a five-question survey on the topic of State Tax Credits. Your answers are anonymous and will be used in the aggregate in a monthly feature titled Viewpoints and sponsored by the Cincinnati office of Grant Thornton LLP, the U.S. member firm of Grant Thornton International Ltd, one of six global audit, tax and advisory organizations.

* 1. Are you familiar with the practice of using state tax credits to lure companies to an area?

* 2. Do you agree with the strategy?

* 3. Should companies that receive tax credits be penalized for missing job growth promises?

* 4. Do you think the Tri-state should be more or less aggressive in pursuing companies this way?

* 5. What are your personal thoughts on taxpayers funding tax credits for businesses?

* 6. Please provide your name and contact information if you would like to give us additional input and possibly be featured on our Viewpoints page. Otherwise, your responses will be anonymous.
