Googles Tax Breaks May Spark Lawsuit

By: Andy Beal

The cynic in me cant help but focus on the awesome publicity that Bob Orr is going to get by leading a group that plans to sue over the tax breaks, given to Google, as an incentive for building a data center in Lenoir, NC.

    Orr, who is running for governor and plans to resign from the institute this month, said the suit will challenge the constitutionality of the exemption. He said the measure is illegal because it gave special treatment to one company, which would seem to run counter to the fact that there be uniformity in the tax law. The suit could be filed by months end, he said. Officials with the state Department of Commerce and attorney generals office declined to comment.
Who cares what merit the case has, any lawsuit that even mentions Google, will get you a lot of attention when youre running for Governor.
