    Yes, the exemption is for the data center operators and builders - not the data center tenants.. (yet tenant spending can be used to count to the threshold criteria). Still don't see how the numbers they boast... match the actual county budget... unless they use fuzzy math and conveniently blend categories when talking about a single category to make it sound bigger.

    Steve-
    I suspect they use all tax revenue derived from the data centers being there to generate the total number.,,,real estate taxes, business equipment taxes, etc.

    I wonder how the county keeps track of the equipment replacements which would change the amount of tax paid by the data centers.
