Pierce County wants data centre tax break

Lawmakers hope to spark a renewed building boom in Eastern Washington by giving technology companies a pass on taxes when they build vast data centres full of computer services, and Pierce County wants a piece of the action.

Benaroya Cos. expects to spend more than US$100 million to build there, but executive Marc Nemirow said the firm will have to rethink its plans if state government hands out what he calls a multimillion-dollar subsidy to data centres in another part of the state. It would hurt Benaroya’s efforts to lure companies to its space, he said.
