Mohave County still involved in property tax suit

Mohave County could be on the hook for nearly $3 million if it loses a state tax case.

The supervisors will once again be asked Monday to authorize the Arizona Attorney General’s Office to defend Mohave County in a property tax court case between the county and the Arizona Department of Revenue versus South Point Energy Center LLC.

The new claim renews an old issue. It deals with South Point paying property taxes for the 550-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant, which is on Fort Mohave tribal land, Deputy Civil County Attorney Delores Milkie said.

The case involves whether taxes would be refunded because of a 2012 federal regulation adopted by the U.S. Department of Interior. The regulation is being litigated in two federal circuit courts. The regulation states it is illegal to collect property taxes on anything on tribal land, Milkie said.
