Board To Review Casino Property Tax Cuts Tuesday

ST. LOUIS, MO. (KMOX) — There will be a review of Harrah’s and River City Casino’s taxes in St. Louis County.

The Board of Equalization will hold a hearing Tuesday to review its decision to reduce the market value of the casinos.

A reduction of Harrah’s and River City’s taxes came under heavy criticism from St. Louis County Assessor Jake Zimmerman.

It was also the topic of a town hall meeting, and recently County Executive Charlie Dooley urged the board to review its decision.

The main concern is that county residents would have to pay higher taxes to make up for the loss in revenue. That concern was raised by both Zimmerman and Dooley.
