Cell tower back tax calculation
by: Tower Genius

Simple. Go to your tax assessor. Find out the assessed value of the improvement made by the cellular carrier. Calculate when it was first assessed and figure out the percentage of the carrier's improvement when compared to your total tax bill, and then calculate that percentage for each year of your yearly tax bill, and that's how you'd figure out what they owe you.

It would be helpful to get a letter from the assessor stating stating the assessed value, and what percentage it was in the initial year so that you can send that as proof of calculation.
