Travis County Apple tax rebate could add up to 80 percent

By Mike Kanin

The Travis County Commissioners Court is prepared to offer Apple, Inc. up to 15 extra percentage points in tax rebates if the firm can prove that it's hired a to-be-determined specific number of low income employees for its new Americas Operations Center. Should the county and Apple agree to the incentive, the agreement could allow the company to hire low income employees on its own, as opposed to going through Workforce Solutions.
