Poll shows North Carolinians support incentives PDF Print
Thursday, 15 November 2007 22:22

North Carolinians are strong supporters of local governments using economic development incentives such as tax credits to coax companies to relocate or expand their businesses in the state.

That’s according to a poll released this week by the North Carolina Economic Developers Association. Tax breaks entice companies like Google Incorporated to relocate to North Carolina. Earlier this year, Google accepted almost $100 million worth of tax incentives, including a 100 percent waiver on county and city business property taxes and an 80 percent waiver on county and city real estate property taxes over the next 30 years, to open a Lenoir facility. The new data center is expected to create over 200 jobs.
