Madison company to add 750 new jobs thanks to tax credit

Madison is about to see a huge influx of jobs, thanks to a seven-figure tax credit.

Exact Sciences, along with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, announced $9 million in tax credits for the company Monday.

The tax credits will allow the west side company to add about 750 new jobs.

Exact Sciences developed the first noninvasive screening test for colon cancer.

The company will also invest $26 million in the economy, which their CEO hopes will spur more growth in other job sectors.

“With growth, people will build houses and build apartments, and we think that’s an important part of what we’re doing here. And it’s one of the reasons it’s so exciting is we know that our growth helps spur continued growth throughout the region and the state,” Exact Sciences CEO Kevin Conroy said.
