As Ahwatukee Lakes homeowners and golf course owner Wilson Gee await the Arizona Court of Appeals ruling on their five-year-old legal fight, a less publicized battle involving the site and county taxpayers has grinded to a halt.

That case pits Maricopa County against the course’s former owner, The True Life Companies Ahwatukee Lakes Investors, LLC, over more than $1.3 million the county says is owed

The county says that when True Life paid its 2015 tax bill, it improperly deducted a $1.3 million penalty the county had assessed because the land was no longer being used as a golf course.

True Life has contended from the start that it has always been entitled to the golf course discount for Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course even though it was closed in 2013.
