According to the December 8, 2017 agenda of the Oneida County Industrial Development Agency:
Consider an amended inducement resolution relating to the Special Metals Corporation facility, amending the abatement of real property tax exemption and authorizing the Agency to conduct a new public hearing. The Company submitted a letter to the Agency requesting amended PILOT assistance, which is a deviation from the Agency’s Uniform Tax Exemption Policy.This will not only affect the property taxes collected each year of the PILOT, but will also impact the sales tax revenue received from the county because the assessed value of property with a PILOT is excluded from the total assessed value of the town used to calculate the town's share of sales tax each quarter.
Interested persons should plan to attend the meeting on January 24th.
