Oral arg. – Miss.S.Ct. – May 23, 2016

At 1:30 the Miss. S. Ct. will hear the case of Pascagoula-Gautier School District v. Jackson County Board of Supervisors.


The School District and the City of Pascagoula protested  the county tax assessor’s assessment of taxes on property leased to Chevron for the years 2011-2014.   The land belongs to the county and taxes collected thereon are used for the School District.  The circuit court found that the School District did not have standing to appeal the taxation of another property owner.  The County concedes that the City may have standing to challenge the taxation but may do so only through the county, attorney, the DA or the AG as per MCA Sect. 11-51-77.

Apparently this is a case of first impression.
