Comment Re:$20 million dollar tax incentive (Score 2) 103

No, it's a completely idiotic point.

It's $20M in taxes that they wouldn't have seen anyhow if the datacenter was built in another state. But the state gains from all the income, sales, property, etc. taxes that the employees pay.

No matter how big the tax break, it's ALWAYS a net gain to the tax base.
