Reno 3PL News: Amazon relocates distribution operations due to location and tax breaks
Amazon.com intends to move its distribution center in Fernley, NV to a 624,000-square-foot warehouse in Reno, NV in 2015.
Nevada tax breaks and location offer companies like Amazon yet another reason to relocate distribution operations to Reno. The state of Nevada is ranked 3rd in the 2015 State Business Tax Climate Index, compared to California ranking at 48. Nevada has various business incentive programs to attract relocation to the Northern Nevada area including sales and use tax abatement, sales and use tax deferral and personal property tax abatement. Nevada does not have state income tax, unitary tax, corporate income tax, inventory tax, franchise tax or special intangible tax.
The trend of businesses relocating their distribution to the Reno area is indicative of the benefits provided by partnering with Hopkins Distribution. Contact us to discuss your specific West Coast distribution needs today.
