Looks like Papa John kept some of the state taxes paid by his employees in 2008

If I read this correctly--

Papa John's International, Inc. Kentucky 2008 $22,235 training reimbursement
Papa John's International, Inc. Kentucky 2008 $7,000 training reimbursement
Papa John's USA, Inc. Kentucky 2008 $25,000 training reimbursement
Papa John's USA, Inc. Kentucky 2008 $100,000 training reimbursement


That's $154,235 for "training reimbursement" (at 14 cents a pizza, that's 1,101,679 pizzas)

This comes from Good Jobs First "Subsidy Tracker"

1. That is a great link to have fun with.

I just spent way too much time over there. I need to come up with more companies to check out, because some of this is shocking. Check out Exxon.

I love when I find a link to good information. Thanks.

3. Yes, I just learned about TIF's this year.

Kohl's is getting one for about half of that from a neighboring city, their school district, and the county here. They just keep bleeding us with new gimmicks.
