POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Tax Commission is investigating tax incentives Bannock County granted to Organic frozen food maker Amy’s Kitchen while wooing the company to open a plant in southeastern Idaho last year.

The Idaho State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1J0fV4l) that members of the state and county tax commission, the mayors of Pocatello and Chubbuck and legal staff from both the county and state met at the county courthouse Tuesday regarding the tax abatement granted to Amy’s Kitchen.

A county spokesman says an agreement was reached and details will be finalized by next week.

Amy’s Kitchen is a privately-held, family-run company that makes organic products such as frozen entrees, pizza, burritos, soups, cookies and candy bars.

Amy’s Kitchen is receiving a tax credit of 26 percent for 15 years for opening a production facility under Idaho’s Tax Reimbursement Incentive plan.
