Collection of Taxes

by Family Farm
(Lynchburg, VA)

I have two Cell Tower leases, and both state that the Lessor is responsible for payment of their portion of the property tax, how do I go about 1. determining the amount that is related to the tower and 2. requesting back taxes.

Not tax advice just thinking out loud...
by: Stephen

Has your tax bill gone up?
When you look at your property tax bill, does it mention the cell towers?
Is there a percentage of property tax or a dollar amount that is attributed to each specific cell tower?
If you have answered NO, then maybe they aren't taxing the cell tower at all and you are simply paying wonderful property taxes like a good American. Do you want to open up a can of worms and tell them they should be taxing your cell tower property even more?

If there is a line item for the cell towers, make sure it specifies how much is for each cell site.

Take their tax bill or have them provide you with written documentation that you can submit to the cell tower tenant.
