NarrativeDeKalb County provided an eight-year property tax abatement, though Wal-Mart makes a payment in lieu of taxes for the school district. Local officials did not respond to requests from Good Jobs First for details on the value of the abatement and the size of the PILOT payment, but based on partial information we estimated that the savings to Wal-Mart will be at least $1 million.
