Gov. Bill Haslam confirmed a sales tax deal with online retailer Amazon.com Thursday morning, announcing thousands of additional jobs and what he hopes will be the resolution of a long-running dispute within the business community.
Amazon will invest a total of $350 million and create 3,500 full-time jobs under the deal, which will also include new locations in Tennessee. Amazon had previously committed to 1,500 jobs in Hamilton and Bradley counties, and between 300 and 500 jobs in Wilson County. The company also anticipates thousands of additional seasonal jobs.
