On Wednesday, AEDC spokesman Joe Holmes said he couldn't comment on the Fidelity expansion.

Businesses participating in the Tax Back program must also be part of the Arkansas Advantage job creation program, which would apply an income tax credit on the company's payroll taxes, provided the company maintains a certain number of full-time workers for a set period.

Word of Fidelity's plans come more than a week after Hewlett-Packard Co. of Palo Alto, Calif., announced it would lay off 500 people at its Conway services center. The company will still employ about 900 people there.

In 2005, Arkansas Business reported on a $22 million incentive package Arkansas proposed to get 800 news jobs from Fidelity, which was considering a competing package from Jacksonville, Fla. Fidelity had moved Arkansas jobs to Florida in the past.
