Boeing Tax Breaks: St. Louis County Initiates Approval Process for $155 Million

Tax Breaks or Tax Burden

On Tuesday, the St. Louis County Council took a significant step toward an innovative economic partnership with Boeing, a leading aerospace company. The project offers major tax incentives for Boeing, aiming to reshape the region's economy.

Boeing's $1.8B investment in advanced manufacturing reshapes the local economy. Seniors' concerns stem from the council denying property tax freeze, possibly impacting Boeing's tax breaks.

Joe Moehlenhoff, a group representative, opposes the idea. These St. Louis County residents feel Boeing benefits while their taxes rise due to increasing essentials costs. Property taxes add more burden, they argue.

Nonetheless, amidst the concerns, lies a tapestry of advantages poised to weave into the community's fabric should the deal materialize. The arrangement, if approved, not only presents Boeing with a tax savings of $155 million over a decade but also guarantees an equal contribution of $155 million to the county's coffers. Such a financial infusion arrives as a lifeline for a county grappling with a budget deficit, promising renewed fiscal stability.

Furthermore, the deal unlocks a myriad of benefits. The project's potential to generate an annual revenue of $2.63 million for the airport holds significance. By revitalizing currently overlooked parcels of land, the project not only eliminates eyesores but also bolsters the airport's financial standing.

In light of the expansion's ripple effect, the proposal pledges 500 well-paid jobs. This greatly interests Phyllis Ellison, leading St. Louis Community College's Workforce Solutions Group. An existing partnership with Boeing proves the program's success, making students job-ready in five weeks, with 85% getting hired.

As development progresses, Ellison anticipates adjusting our training to fit Boeing's evolving needs. The region already has 118,000 skilled manufacturing workers aligned with Boeing. This partnership highlights the importance of cultivating skilled professionals for Boeing's growth.

The transformative project's path is set. Pending advancements next week and approval by month's end, St. Louis County Council readies for a pivotal moment. Yet, the project's scope extends to the city, where the Board of Aldermen's approval holds the key. Managing the airport, the city's endorsement shapes its fate.
