State Auditor Demands Refund from Ohio Company

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi’s state auditor is demanding that an Ohio business pay nearly $235,000 over a failed business expansion. State Auditor Shad White says John Cullen’s company Pay Alliance must repay a $174,000 grant, plus $60,000 interest, to Mississippi or face a lawsuit. In 2010 the company agreed to accept up to $400,000 in grant money from the Mississippi Development Authority to open an office in Oxford and hire at least 60 people within three years but never submitted paperwork proving it created jobs and has relocated its Mississippi operations to Ohio.
