Take advantage of sales tax exemptions for 20 years
Incentives make a difference. Minnesota has one of the most aggressive incentive programs specifically for data centers. Companies that build data or network operation centers in Minnesota of at least 25,000 square feet and invest $30 million in the first two years qualify for many incentives including sales tax exemptions for twenty years on computers and servers, cooling and energy equipment, electricity use and software. And unlike many other states, Minnesota businesses aren’t assessed property taxes on personal property.
Greater MSP can offer a wide variety of assistance, incentives and loans for businesses including:
• Local government tax forgiveness
• State government grants and loans for buildings, equipment and employee training
• Tax credits for investors
• Electric and natural gas utility rebates
Low risk of natural disaster
