OfficeMax seeks incentives to keep HK in Illinois

New York -- OfficeMax has asked the state of Illinois for tax breaks to keep the company's headquarters in-state after its mergerwith Office Depot Inc. is complete, the Associated Press reported.

The CEO of OfficeMax, Ravi Saligram, and state Sen. Tom Cullerton made their pitch Tuesday during a hearing on the state's pension crisis, the report said.

OfficeMax and Office Depot, which announced plans to merge in February, are still  trying to decide where to locate their combined headquarters.
