A story that appeared in the June 7 edition about the property tax abatement Volkswagen received contained incorrect information. The car company got a 10-year property tax abatement as part of its deal to build a distribution center in Roane County. Volkswagen will not pay any property taxes during that period, including the portion that would go to schools. The county is considering not offering similar deals to future industries.
