MONTERREY, Mexico -- Carrier may have to repay thousands of dollars it received from the state to expand jobs at its Indianapolis facility after the company announced it was relocating 1,400 jobs to Monterrey, Mexico. 

In 2013, the company signed a contract with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. 

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation was expecting that for $200,000 the company would train 500 employees.

By 2015, the facility told the state it planned on 276 new jobs.

In the past, state officials have forced a non-compliant business to refund the tax dollars.

In 2012, Whirpool repaid $800,000 in tax credits from a 2009 contract with the IEDC after a significant layoff of manufacturing jobs.
