Apt. Owners Suing County over Property Tax – VideosApril 19th, 2017 by iPhone
Their apartment complex, located behind Walmart, has an appraised value of $3.4 million.
When the owners recently purchased the property, the price was $1.8 million.
County attorney Cliff Gibson, told the Quorum Court, Monday night, that he is investigating the possibility that C-Tan purchased the property from a related business industry, which could explain a “lower than market value” sale price.
82% of the property tax that is collected is designated to go to the Monticello school system. If their $1.6 million assessment request is approved, it would cost the school district approximately $15,000 per year.
If this were to happen, it is expected that many other large properties would begin to file suit, against the county.
