School board approves INVISTA tax settlement
Placeholder Image
The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees unanimously voted Tuesday to approve the terms of a settlement in a years-long tax dispute between Kershaw County and INVISTA. The $1.9 million settlement comes several years after INVISTA requested a tax refund of as much as $2.5 million from the county. INVISTA said the county overvalued certain taxes in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Because the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) receives funds from the county, KCSD Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan said, it will owe 70 percent -- or $1.33 million -- of the final settlement.
