Keystone Pipeline Tax Controversy Continues

December 22, 2009

The Arkansas City Traveler reports that the Cowley County (Kansas) economic development partnership has passed a resolution “condemning a proposed property tax exemption” for the Keystone pipeline. The paper also reports that “several other entities are poised to do the same this week.”

In November, the Cowley County Administrator told the Cowley County Commissioners that the county will lose between $400,000 and $1 million in property taxes from the exemption. (See page two of the link.)
