Tax Officials: Century III Mall Owes Thousands In Property Taxes
Tax collectors in western Pennsylvania say a closed mall owes hundreds of thousands in property taxes from last year.
The West Mifflin Borough tax collector's office says Century III Mall PA LLC owes $90,620 in borough taxes and $281,709 in school district taxes. The Post-Gazette reports officials say another $54,395 is owed in county taxes for 2018.
West Mifflin Borough Manager Brian Kamauf says the borough has been prepared for such a situation as the mall has lost millions in assessed value over the years.
Earlier this month, the mall was closed by West Mifflin officials and deemed "unsafe and uninhabitable" after a snap of cold weather damaged the mall's sprinkler system.
