Beltrami County Commissioners support legislative protection from state overtax case with Enbridge
April 21, 2021
BEMIDJI -- Tax decisions made years ago on Enbridge pipeline utilities by the Minnesota Department of Revenue could put a financial burden on Beltrami County.
As a result, county officials are hoping legislation at the Minnesota Capitol is passed to avoid being held responsible.
Last month, the Minnesota Tax Court made decisions in favor of the Enbridge company, which argued that it had been overtaxed for several years by the Department of Revenue. In the decisions, the state agency was found to have overvalued the company's pipelines from 2012-216.
