Wal-Mart Subsidies in Ruston, LA
|Address||1201 N Service Rd E|
|Type of Facility||Supercenter|
|Value of Subsidies||more than $947,000|
NarrativeWal-Mart received a $647,000 enterprise zone tax break for this Supercenter. The city provided $300,000 in infrastructure improvement around the site through a state grant. The city is also making $12 million in road improvements throughout the area through a sales-tax increment financing district. Since the district also includes many neighboring developments and local officials could not estimate how much of the improvements went to Wal-Mart's access roads, we did not include TIF funds in the subsidy calculation.
