The motivation to donate the 68.46-acre property, which includes a television studio, hotel rooms for visiting executives and a helipad, could be twofold for GE. First, there is the public relations win of being regarded as a benevolent corporate citizen. Then there are the underlying tax write-offs that could reach into the millions.
