WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) -- A southwest Ohio city hit hard by job losses during the recession is getting help in spurring job creation from state tax incentives.
The Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved tax breaks for DealerTrack in Wilmington, a city that lost thousands of jobs when package delivery company DHL moved from its air park. DealerTrack expects to create 213 new full-time jobs with expansion of its automotive contract and title services.
Tax breaks for two other companies are expected to add 65 Wilmington jobs.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/YcNBsS ) that the executive director of Clinton County's regional commission says the area takes pride in having weathered an economic disaster. Chris Schock says people are focused on the future.
Statewide, tax breaks were approved recently for 13 projects to create 1,417 jobs.
