TAYLOR, Texas (Austin Business Journal) — The massive plot of land in Taylor that is set to become Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.’s $17 billion chipmaking plant is now officially inside city limits, potentially adding more than $50 million to the city’s general fund over the next three decades.

The move marks the latest step in South Korea-based Samsung’s construction of the plant, which is the largest foreign development in Texas on record.
