Brunswick County and Saunders feuding over tax money

There are new developments in the case of a Brunswick County developer who owes more than $1 million in back property taxes. According to the Brunswick Beacon, Mr. Mark Saunders says his company hasn't paid the county, because the county owes him a substantial amount of money. Mr. Saunders says the county laid a water line over his property, without permission, and without compensating him, and that water line has halted development on his waterfront property. Saunders’ company owns about $400 million worth of property in Brunswick County in major developments like Seawatch, and Ocean Ridge Plantation.

I agree, sue the county for

I agree, sue the county for the water line issue, if it really is an issue. Regardless, the taxes need to be paid immediately. The county expects and depends on the tax revenue and will do whatever they can to get their hands on the money due to them. If you read the articles in the beacon and the myrtle beach paper, you will see that he is also feuding over the fact that he hasn't installed infrastructure in areas within several of his communities that have been sold out for 4 years. The infrastructure costs for these sections is 13 million. The county will be calling on the bonds that are in place and will be completing the infrastructure for Mark, since he doesn't seem able or willing to do it himself.

He owes taxes period. Pay up or I hope the county sells his property for back taxes. The economy halted his development. He should take up the water pipe issuer in civil court, it's two separate things.
