ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — In a new lawsuit, Shoppingtown Mall is suing the Town of DeWitt over their property tax assessment. This is a separate lawsuit from the one involving back taxes.
Shoppingtown says the property should be assessed at a value around $3.6 million, not the almost $37 million it is currently assessed at. They are calling the current assessment “excessive” and “unlawful.”
Shoppingtown missed a deadline earlier this month to pay back nearly $10 million in back taxes.
