AC Expected To Make Change When It Comes To Abitibi Tax Abatement

by Jessica Cervantez

The Angelina College Board of Trustees is expected to make a decision concerning Abitibi's tax abatement agreement. The board is expected to sign a letter saying the agreement will be canceled if the mill is not re-opened by the end of December.

Angelina County made the same decision recently.

This would force Abitibi to pay the abated taxes for 2004 and 2005 if the mill stays idle.
