150 Jobs Coming to Little Rock

Fidelity will seek to utilize the state's Arkansas Tax Back program for a partial sales tax rebate on new technology equipment, HVAC, office equipment and work stations.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Fidelity National Information Services appears poised to add 150 new jobs and invest $3 million at its campus in west Little Rock.

A resolution on the city of Little Rock board of directors agenda indicates that Jacksonville, Fla.-based Fidelity will seek to utilize the state's Arkansas Tax Back program for a partial sales tax rebate on new technology equipment, HVAC, office equipment and work stations.

The Tax Back program provides a refund of sales and use taxes for building materials and taxable machinery and equipment associated with an approved project that exceeds $100,000.

Fidelity is a technology company that handles payment processing and banking solutions for a broad array of clients in the financial, mortgage, and automotive industries.  A Fortune 500 company, Fidelity bought the former Alltel Information Services (Systematics) in 2003 and at one time employed several hundred white-collar workers in Little Rock.

AEDC officials said they could not comment on the matter and city of Little Rock officials did not return messages left regarding the agenda item. A message was also left for a Fidelity official.
