The company, which has faced global criticism for its tax evasion policies, also said it would spend $30bn in the United States over the next five years, creating 20,000 new jobs. Apple said it expects to invest more than $30 billion in capital expenditures in the US over the next five years and create more than 20,000 new jobs.
The new campus is part of a larger effort from Apple to contribute more money to the USA economy as it repatriates, or brings home, overseas cash.
Apple said it will increase its local manufacturing fund, announced a year ago, from $1bn to $5bn, indicating that it will be sourcing more components for its products domestically.
However, changes in the law exempts US corporations from most taxes on foreign profits going forward, and specifies that companies pay a one-time mandatory tax of 15.5 percent on cash and cash equivalents on profits now held overseas, according to Reuters. That means the new positions created by Apple are likely to have a more significant political impact than its $38bn tax payment, according to Erik Gordon, a professor at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.
Apple's new investments add to the company's current pace of spending with domestic suppliers and manufacturers, estimated at $55 billion in 2018.
Apple's offshore cash reserve stands at just over $250 billion, based on the company's Form 10-K filing for the fiscal year which ended September 30.
Additionally, Apple, Inc. projects that it will contribute an additional $38 billion in taxes on repatriated foreign income in compliance with the revised tax law.
The economic contribution will not include tax payments, the release said, nor will it include tax revenues from products sales or employee wages.
