The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is poised to have a significant impact on the tax revenues of Virginia, North Carolina and West Virginia. During construction it’s estimated that the three state governments will receive $4.2 million in tax revenue per year. Once construction begins, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline also will pay annual property taxes to every locality where it is located.

Then, beginning in 2022, projected cumulative property taxes are estimated at $25 million annually. Want to know how your community will directly benefit from these tax revenues?
