Discussion on GM tax incentive payback is delayed

Whether General Motors should repay the state all or some of $60.3 million in tax incentives the automaker received for its former assembly plant in Lordstown will be a decision made later.

As will a separate tax incentive request GM has for its multibillion high-tech manufacturing plant that is before the Ohio Tax Credit Authority, which as late as Friday had planned to consider both matters when it met this morning.

The items were removed from the meeting agenda, a move that is “not uncommon,” wrote Ohio Development Services Agency spokesman Todd Walker in an email before the meeting’s 10 a.m. scheduled start time.

Both items, he wrote, will be heard at a future tax credit authority meeting. The board next meets Sept. 28, but it’s unknown if either item will be ready for the meeting.
