AMC Entertainment will leave downtown for Leawood
AMC Entertainment is the latest business to answer the call of the Kansas program that offers a big pile of money to companies that relocate there, usually from Kansas City, Missouri.
AMC will receive a tax rebate of more than $40 million to leave downtown and build a new headquarters in Leawood. The company is taking advantage of an economic development program that richly rewards employers who set up shop in Kansas. Dozens of Missouri companies have reached for the cash.
