Google Tax Break Approved SC Data Center

Google got its Tax Breaks in SC.

The google guys are smart and leveraging their brand recognition to help get politicians reelected, bringing media attention to their small town.  30 years of no property tax to employ 200 people.

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Google won't pay property taxes in Richland County for 30 years.

Tuesday night, County Council decided on its tax incentive plan for a Google data center in Blythewood.

WIS News 10's Craig Melvin talked to County Councilman Damon Jeter and County Administrator Milton Pope. They said Google has committed to spend $600 million in Richland County. The internet giant is expected to create at least 200 new jobs with an average salary of $60,000 a year.

What the news doesn't clarify is of the $600 million spent in Richland county, a large part is capital equipment, installed by specialized technicians who are sent to the facility for installation.  I would be curious how much of the local labor will get of the $600 million of construction cost.
