Mohave County might call for more PILT funds from feds

Another court battle could be in Mohave County’s future.

Next week, the Mohave County Board of Supervisors will consider joining a class action suit brought against the federal government by Kane County, Utah, demanding repayment of taxes owed from mineral rights on state’s lands under the jurisdiction of the U.S. government.

The action item of Payment in Lieu of Taxes is being brought forward by Supervisor Buster Johnson.

“I had brought this up at a previous meeting saying we should join the suit, but staff didn’t do it,” Johnson said. “I guess they were waiting for direction, so I’m bringing it back.”

If successful in the lawsuit, Mohave County’s share of the repayment for 2015-2017 shortages is estimated at nearly $93,000.
