Volkswagen got a 10-year property-tax abatement as part of its deal to build a distribution center in Roane County.
“They do not pay any tax,” said Leslie Henderson, president and CEO of The Roane Alliance.
School taxes are another matter.
“There is no plan to exempt the school taxes,” Henderson said. “That was just something we were researching.”
Henderson said research was prompted because the tax abatement program needs to go to the county this summer for renewal.
