Insley says the move from Everett will review Washington State’s Boeing company’s “favorable” tax treatment.
Olympia, Wash. – Gov. Jay Insley said Boeing and Washington would favor the state of Washington if the corporation moved the Carol 787 Dreamliner product to South Carolina. Reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Inslee signed a bill in 2013 to increase taxes on commercial aircraft production from 2024 to 2040. A tax break was introduced in Everett in 2003 as an incentive to build the Dreamliner.
In a written statement released Wednesday, Insley said the state government would “take a hard look at the company’s favorable tax treatment” if the move to South Carolina is confirmed.
He said the state has the best workers and is “the best place in the world to build an aircraft.”

Sen. of the State. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle, who voted in favor of extending the 2013 tax break, said he did not see legislators coming up with other tax incentives to block the move.
He said the state needs to further ensure that Boeing jobs are not moved out of the state.
“The long-standing relationship between Washington and Washington state and Boeing is imperative,” said Carlyle, who blamed a possible move on Boeing’s economic struggles during the epidemic.
“I believe [this relationship] “This will be an incredibly difficult time weather,” he said.
Republican government candidate Lauren Culpen said it would be “bad news” for the state if Boeing moved Dreamliner production to South Carolina.
Kalp blamed the state’s “unscrupulous” business environment, something he said was the result of Insley’s tax policy and regulations.
“This won’t be the last business to leave,” Kalpan said.
