Arguments concerning how an unconstitutional Natural Resources District tax will be refunded will be heard Thursday, Jan. 21 at Red Willow County District Court.
No ruling will be issued at that time. Instead, District Court Judge David Urbom will hear from the Upper, Middle and Lower NRDs on Jan. 21 and then take the case under advisement. A ruling on the case will be issued in the following months.
Incorrect information was provided in a prior story.
The property tax, found unconstitutional by the State Supreme Court, is being held in escrow by the NRDs until a legal means of providing a refund can be determined. Currently, there are no laws on the books describing this process.
