Records indicate that the Leon County property tax bill for the Amazon Fulfillment Center – in the amount of $217,133 – was recently paid to the Leon County Tax Collector.
Documents indicate the property was valued at $15,322,469 with a total tax bill of $226,180 – the taxpayer received a discount for paying early.
Records indicate that before the property was improved, the previous tax bill was less than $1,000.
Tax documents indicate that $127,397 of the tax payment was allocated to the Leon County General Fund and approximately $83,000 was allocated to the Leon County School Board.
The newly established Leon County Children’s Services County was allocated $5,745.
The Amazon project was recently in news due to a delay in beginning operations caused – in part – by a slowdown in consumer demand.
