Facebook Officials Meet with Legislators


Representatives with Facebook are pitching their case to state leaders in Salem. Thursday, they spoke at a special "Joint Committee Meeting" of the Legislature. The debate centers around how data centers should be classified and taxed. Facebook spokesman Lee Weinstein says as they continue to grow they need more certainty in how they will be taxed in Oregon. “They had a very favorable reaction from the Legislators at that hearing. This is ultimately a Legislative issue. We've had a couple of different departments with different opinions on it, and Facebook point of view is that they need certainty as they move into the world market and that they will address that in February." Local Representative Mike McLane of Powell Butte plans to introduce a bill that will clarify tax issues surrounding enterprise zones and data centers.
