EBay takes incentive, will add jobs to Utah

(Deseret News) Utah has won its bid to add more jobs to the state's employment rolls. Internet auction giant eBay Inc. has officially accepted an incentive offered by the state of Utah to further expand its global customer support operations.

The announcement Wednesday came following a vote in October by the Governor's Office of Economic Development Board to offer eBay nearly $2 million in incentives to expand the company's customer support operations in Draper.

The incentive is in the form of a refundable tax credit based on 25 percent of new state revenue over 10 years.

"The expansion of our customer service operations is not only a reflection of our great working relationship with the state of Utah, but our continued commitment to improving the customer experience at eBay," Chad O'Meara, vice president of customer service for eBay Marketplaces, said in a prepared statement. "We have attracted and retained a quality work force in Utah over the past 10 years, and we appreciate the ongoing community and economic support."
