December 17, 2018

The fast-growing online retailer Wayfair Inc. landed $31 million in tax incentives from the state Thursday to help the company add thousands of jobs in Boston and hundreds in Pittsfield.

The Economic Assistance Coordinating Council approved a plan to dole out the incentives to the home-goods seller over 10 years. In return, Wayfair pledged to add a total of 3,300 jobs.

A spokeswoman for the council said this is the state’s second-biggest tax-credit award since 2010. The largest was a $46 million package pledged to MassMutual earlier this year in return for its decision to add 1,500 jobs in Springfield and up to 1,000 in Boston.
