Google Asks for Tax Breaks on Expansion in The Dalles

Posted: Updated:

GOLDENDALE, Wash. - Google is planning an expansion of its data center at The Dalles, and wants tax breaks similar to the ones it received back in 2006.

The break would be a 15-year tax savings on a new building and contents. Google's tax breaks in 2006 came as it powered up computers at the Port of The Dalles. 

The company says it will invest at least $200 million and add a minimum of 10 jobs. Google would pay an initial fee of $1.2 million.

Once the building is on the tax rolls, Google would pay $800,000 a year for 15 years to the city, county and local school district.

The Dalles City Council will take public comment and vote on the deal at Monday's meeting.
