Jazz School, About Those Taxes – Monday’s Roundup

Jazz School
Atlantic City kids will one day – in the not-too-distant-future – have a jazz school complete with a recording studio, thanks to the efforts of the people behind the Chicken Bone Beach concerts. A house on Indiana avenue was donated to the group and they are fundraising for the costs needed to renovate the property. Maxwell Reil has the details for The Press of Atlantic City.

About Those Taxes
If you live in Atlantic County and you’re worried about your tax bill, you might want to take a look at this: the most expensive hotel sold in 2016 was Atlantic City’s Borgata. (Heads up – that’s a paywall link). If you can remember way back to last year, Borgata was still fighting Atlantic City over its valuation and how much it should pay in taxes. The state stepped in with the PILOT agreement, which fixed a rate for all casino properties. Everyone has been fighting ever since, pretty much, about who gets how much of those PILOT payments. Borgata, in negotiations with the state’s lawyers, agreed to settle its outstanding claims against the city for overpaid taxes. The state then turned around and said the county would get a smaller share of the casinos’ taxes than county executive Dennis Levinson had agreed with the city’s mayor.
