Business paying back $125,000 over time
A Putnam County business is figuring out how to pay $125,000 in back taxes. Seven years ago Tasty Blend Foods was given a tax incentive aimed at growing business in the county, and because of an oversight by attorneys it has recently come to light that the company owes Putnam County six figures. The County says Tasty Blend Foods didn't do anything wrong, but a paperwork issue means they owe more than they thought. Putnam County commissioners have agreed to let Tasty Blend make annual payments of $9000 for the next 14 years to pay off the debt.
