Source of Data: 

The $200 million estimate is cited in both Sam Howe Verhovek, "Fighting Sprawl, a County Gets Intel to Limit Jobs," New York Times, June 9, 1999 and Don Hamilton and Elisa Williams, "Intel, County Strike Deal on Tax," The Oregonian, May 27, 1999.

Notes: 

This is one of a series of tax breaks Intel has received through the state's Strategic Investment Program. These amounts are listed separately in the main Subsidy Tracker data under the entries for that program. The source for those figures give an amount of $421 million for 1999, but because of the possibility that this might include a previous subsidy award, we go with the $200 million figure report in 1999 media accounts.
