Wise County discovers new form of underground property to tax

The Wise County Commissioner of Revenue is notifying the owners of Wise County's 516 natural gas wells that the underground cement and steel will count as real property for county tax purposes, according to this report in the Kingsport Times-News.

This ruling will surely result in litigation, and will be closely watched by the other coalfield counties.
