Amazon is bringing two more distribution centers to the Chicago area with the promise of more than 1,000 jobs in Aurora, thanks in part to nearly $12.9 million in new corporate tax breaks through a state jobs program that soon may be overhauled.

It’s the latest in a set of tax breaks that potentially could save Amazon more than $100 million over the next decade if the giant delivery company fulfills promises to create thousands of jobs.

With this latest announcement, Amazon’s workforce in Illinois would total more than 7,000 full-time jobs. The company already operates similar facilities in Joliet, Romeoville and in Edwardsville, near St. Louis. Another center is under construction in suburban Monee… Please click here to read Ally Marotti and Ray Long’s story in the Tribune.
