Computer Data Center Equipment Incentive Program

The Computer Data Center Equipment Incentive Program authorized under Act 84 of 2016 is designed to attract investment from businesses operating a computer data center in Pennsylvania. The program provides a tax refund for sales and use tax paid on qualified computer data center equipment utilized within a facility certified by the Department of Revenue for participation in the program.

The computer data center owner or operator must apply for the program. The total amount of refunds available from the program each fiscal year is $7 million. If the total amount of tax refunds approved for all applicants in a fiscal year exceeds this amount, the Department shall allocate the refund to be received by each applicant.

Specific information is available in the program guidelines. If you have questions, please contact the Economic Development Coordinator at 717-772-3896 or
