Defended a tax appeal filed by a New Jersey municipality against our medical center client. The city filed appeals against our client and surrounding properties challenging its exempt status for the 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 tax years. The total potential tax liability if the city was successful was, at a minimum, $20 million ($5 million per year). Worked out a settlement of the litigation based on a community service contribution agreement resulting in the properties retaining their property tax exempt status, and payments by our client to the city of $459,900 per year for seven years and an additional $335,500 per year for seven years for public health support in the city and to support its community center and programs for youth and senior populations. The total amount to be paid over seven years is the equivalent to what the city wanted as a payment for one year.
