Michael Hillerby, Director of Legislative Affairs with Kaempfer Crowell, recently represented Google, Inc. in their successful application for a $25 million abatement package to build a new data center in northern Nevada. A combination of sales and property tax abatements from the State of Nevada are part of Google’s $600 million investment in the new Storey County Data Center. The application was unanimously approved by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) Board on September 16, 2020.
The project is estimated to create more than 2,500 construction jobs, and generate approximately $90 million in new tax revenues over the 20 year life of the abatements. As a part of the GOED meeting, Board Chair Governor Steve Sisolak announced Google will be making an additional $600 million investment in their Henderson Data Center in Clark County. When combined with the previous investment in Henderson, Google’s total proposed investment in Nevada is more than $1.8 billion.
