Port Angeles) – The city of Port Angeles and a local business will split the tax bill owed to the state over a downtown property.
The state Department of Revenue levied a 29-thousand dollar claim for leasehold taxes against Heckman Motors.
The claim came well after the city and Heckman had reached a property management agreement as part of the acquisition of property for the downtown Gateway Transportation Center.
In 2006 Heckman Motors and the city agreed Heckman would lease one parcel, and manage a second parcel, of what is known as the “Niichel” property, on Front Street, between Lincoln and Laurel.
The state claim ruling caught both the company and the city by surprise. The city eventually billed Heckman the full amount.
