Data center taxation- what you need to know to tame your tax assessment
Data centers require a data driven approach to property taxes. Advancements in information technology and the need for storage have thrust data centers into the limelight as one of the fastest growing asset classes in the real estate sector. The pace of private investment, coupled with complex tenant landlord leasing fundamentals, have left taxing authorities struggling to accurately value both the real and personal property at these locations. The resulting assessments often mean paying more in property taxes than what is required.
