Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (CONE) recently declared that as a result of tax grant incentive agreement between the City and CyrusOne, the company has generated $3 million in tax savings for customers operating in CyrusOne’s Carrollton Texas data center. Passed in June 2013, the Carrollton tax incentive is an addition to the Texas state incentives, (H.B. No. 1223) which eliminated the state sales and use tax of 6.25 percent on data center utilities, infrastructure, and networks purchases. The Carrollton-specific incentive rebates up to another 0.5 percent in sales and use tax for the same customer purchases, or up to 50 percent of the taxes the city would normally receive.

“As the leading operating data center in Texas, CyrusOne’s Carrollton facility has been a tremendous source of job growth and investment for the greater Dallas and Carrollton area. The tax incentives have thus far saved our customers $3 million since 2013 which we believe to be one of the highest incentives in the state,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and CEO. “This data center facility is about one-quarter-mile long, or large enough to house six 747 airplanes or two Washington Monuments. The data center offers up to 26 Megawatts of power, which is enough to power 20,000 homes. CyrusOne is the only data center provider in the greater Dallas area offering this type of return on investment. Bold leaders such as Carrollton City Manager Leonard Martin and Mayor Matthew Marchant epitomize what makes the DFW community such a vibrant business environment by assisting to attract companies to locate their mission critical information technology in Carrollton.”
