The Vigo County Parks Board owes nearly $10,000 in property taxes after a recent purchase.
The Vigo County Parks Board bought the Pfizer property in southern Vigo county back in November. The land was paid for through donations from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation and the Vigo County Redevelopment Commission. Since taxes are paid in arrears, the board owes 2013 taxes this year on the property.
The tax bill responsibility was part of the sale.
So in the end, the county is paying taxes to itself.
