second paragraph: "The Taylor, facility, in central Texas, plans to create around 1,800 jobs, though chip production isn't expected to start until the end of 2024 * * * To woo Samsung, Taylor had offered incentives that include the equivalent of property-tax breaks of as much as 92.5% for the first 10 years, with the write-offs gradually declining over the next several decades [namely there will still be tax breaks for the next several decades, just not as much as 92.5%].

third paragraph: " 'A final decision has not been made regarding the location,' a Samsung spokeswoman said.

"The Taylor factory is expected to serve as an advanced chip-making facility for Samsung's contract-manufacturing operations that make semiconductors designed by other firms.
