Whatcom refineries seek property tax reductions
BP Cherry Point is the county’s top taxpayer. It says the property assessment of about $975 million is at least $275 million too high.
The Bellingham Herald reported the tax on $275 million in property amounts to nearly $3 million.
The second biggest taxpayer in the county is the smaller Phillips 66 refinery. It says its $459 million assessment is $35 million too high.
The refineries and the county are taking the dispute to the state Board of Tax Appeals.
