Charlotte City Sues Owens-Brockway Glass Container, Inc. for Deferred Taxes

Charlotte City has sued Owens-Brockway Glass Container, Inc., demanding the company pay the city $4.1 million it deferred through a 12-year tax abatement. City officials approved the abatement in 2000 to help the glass container manufacturer undertake $40 million worth of improvements to its 600,000 square-foot facility on Packard Highway. The plant, which had employed 150 people, closed in the spring of 2010. At issue is the city's claim that the company removed substantially all of the equipment from the facility when it closed. Owens-Brockway disputes that. In January of 2011 the Michigan State Tax Commission granted the city's request to revoke the company's tax abatement. The first legal salvo came when Owens-Brockway filed suit against the city and the Michigan State Tax Commission in August of 2011, over the commission's approval of the city's request. The city then counter-sued, asking the glass manufacturer to pay the waived taxes.
