I’ve written about Qbase before. Something doesn’t seem right about the constant flow of tax dollars, no-bid contracts, and the whole way this company is financed. It’s also interesting to look at the donations from Qbase execs to campaign funds- but, I’m not an investigative reporter, and I won’t get paid or a pulitzer for digging to the bottom of this:
Dayton businessman Ernie Green received state approval Thursday, Sept. 4, for a $62,500 tax credit he would receive for a $250,000 investment in Qbase, the data analytics company based in Beavercreek.
The Ohio Department of Development’s technology investment tax credit committee gave the approval during a meeting in Columbus to review applications from around the state requesting incentives for a total of $925,000 in investments. The program is designed to encourage technology investments in Ohio companies.
I encourage you to search this site for the other posts about Qbase and its questionable tax breaks, tax dollar investments and the contracts it receives. As far as I understand- government contractors are barred from donating to federal office campaigns- however it doesn’t seem to stop Qbase.
