I heard the little guy is paying for Act 221 while the rich are benefiting. Is that true?
No. The little guy is getting immediate and direct benefit from Act 221 because it’s creating jobs, employing 4,500 or more people, and bringing new money into the economy to be spent in a myriad of ways that support the entire state. Act 221 allows the wealthy to benefit from tax credits – but that’s the whole point – in order to lure them into spending their money on new industry.
