students. On March 4, 2019, the application was denied as condominiums did not qualify under the use requirement of N. C. G. S. 105-278.8. On March 29, 2019, the legal counsel for Rural Health Group, Inc., appealed the decision citing North Carolina Court of Appeals case Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital. The contention was that the condominiums were used for the recruitment and retention of physicians and students. After consulting with the legal counsel for the North Carolina Department of Revenue Property Tax Division it was found that the application and use was comparable to the Court of Appeals case. It was requested that the Board reverse his denial of the exemption application for the parcels and approve the application based on the new information provided, which is attached to these minutes as Attachment D. Commissioner Qualls arrived at the meeting during this report. Commissioner Brewer moved to reverse the previous decision of the County Assessor and approve the Rural Health Group, Inc., property tax exemption on parcels 0910994, 0910985, 0911003, 0911002, 0910988, and 0910986 for 2019 tax year.

C.
Shane Lynch, County Assessor, addressed the Board and requested the approval of a

late 2019 property tax exclusion application for Sylvan Heights Bird Park, parcel 1100754. The Tax Department reviewed Sylvan Heights Bird Park application and had it been received before the January 31, 2019 deadline, the request for exclusion would have been approved. The letter of request from Sylvan Heights Bird Park, the late 2019 application for property tax exclusion, N. C. G. S. 105-278.7 noting the exclusion criteria, and N. C. G. S. 105-282.1(a1) which addressed the late application were provided for the Board s review. It was requested that the Board approve the late 2019 property tax exclusion application as it was the only recourse Sylvan Heights Bird Park had to obtain the property tax exclusion for the 2019 tax year. If approved, Sylvan Heights Bird Park was aware that this application was only for 2019 and they would have to submit a timely application for 2020. Commissioner Manning moved to approve the 2019 late property tax exclusion application regarding Sylvan Heights Bird Park, parcel 1100754. Commissioner Smith seconded the motion, which passed unanimously by voice vote.

C.
Shane Lynch, County Assessor, addressed the Board requesting that the Board make a determination on whether or not to compromise, settle, or adjust the 2018 (10 ), 2017 (20 ), 2016 (30 ), 2015 (40 ), 2014 (50 ) and 2013 (60 ) late list penalties on business personal property owned by White's Auto, LLC, in the amount of 4,264.33 and White Ford, LLC, in the amount of 3,229.41 as two separate accounts. In the State of North Carolina, businesses were required to list any business-related personal property and/or business-related improvements to leased real property during the annual listing period each year. When a business does not accurately list their personal property or list it at all, N. C. G. S. 105-312 allowed the Assessor to create a discovery bill for the current year and for any of the preceding five years during which it escaped taxation. The same statute allowed the Tax Assessor and Tax Collector to add a penalty of 10 of the amount of the tax for the earliest year in which the property was not listed, plus an additional 10 of the same amount for each subsequent listing period that elapsed before the property was discovered. This statute also gives the Board of Equalization and Review the authority to compromise, settle, or adjust the taxes and penalty. The owner of White's Auto, LLC, and White Ford, LLC, had requested any consideration the Board could provide regarding the late list penalties applied to the two discovery bills which had been penalized at the maximum penalty allowed by law. Letters from the accountant of the property owner, a copy of N. C. G. S. 105-312 regarding discovered property, appraisal, and penalty had been provided for the Board s review. It was requested that the Board decide whether to leave the penalty as is or whether to compromise, settle, or adjust the late list penalties for White's Auto, LLC, and White Ford, LLC, business personal property for the 2013 -2018 tax years.

After being sworn in by the Chairman, Lawrence White, owner of White s Auto, LLC, and White Ford, LLC, addressed the Board and provided a brief history regarding both businesses and stated that his listings were now current. He stated that when he provided the operating statement to the auditor for auditing purposes it included machinery, parts, special tools, and equipment that were outdated, along with assets that were located at other dealerships in other counties and some equipment that had been disposed. The vehicles that were not registered and were for sale were also being taxed because they were used for the purposes of the business. Since January, Mr. White had been paying the County 5,600 monthly towards the principle tax on the discovery bill. He stated that the personal property listing was now correct and requested that penalties and interest be waived. After a brief discussion was held, Mr. Lynch stated that the total penalty for the period of

2013 - 2018 for White Ford, LLC, was in the amount of 4,264.33 and White s Auto, LLC, in the amount of 3,229.41.

Commissioner Bryant moved to approve a 10 compromise regarding the late list penalties for White's Auto, LLC, and White Ford, LLC, business personal property for the 2013 - 2018 tax years. Commissioner Manning seconded the motion, which passed unanimously by voice vote.

Tagged Passions:alcohol and sale

Robert F. Shields, Alcoholic Beverage Control Board Chairman, addressed the Board and

introduced Derain Caudle, Halifax County Alcoholic Beverage Control General Manager. He requested that the Board adopt a resolution in support of the current Alcoholic Beverage Control System for the sale of liquor.

Tagged Passions:alcohol, sale, and manager

Derian Caudle, Halifax County Alcoholic Beverage Control General Manager, addressed the Board stating that the citizens of Halifax County voted to permit the sale of liquor through the establishment of an ABC Board, which was a part of the North Carolina Control System for the sale of spirituous liquors. House Bill 971, Modern Licensure Model for Alcohol Control, was filed on April 25, 2019 and would privatize the retail sale and wholesale distribution of liquor, allows a minimum of 1,500 permits to be issued to any business that sold food and to any retail business, with additional permits available for issuance based on population growth with retail liquor sales authorized between the hours of 7 A. M. and 2 A. M., and with those businesses allowed to ship liquor directly to individuals in or out of the State. North Carolina s local Alcoholic Beverage Control Boards operate about 423 retail stores, balancing access to liquor and generating local revenue while maintaining control. The General Assembly s Nonpartisan Program Evaluation Division was directed to examine whether other systems for alcohol beverage control, including privatized systems, were appropriate for North Carolina, specifically the State of Washington, which recently changed its beverage control system from State government control of wholesale and retail control of spirituous liquor to a licensure model. The Program Evaluation Division Report, Changing How North Carolina Controls Liquor Sales Has Operational, Regulatory, and Financial Ramifications , released on February 11, 2019, did not recommend privatization; found that among the southeastern states, North Carolina collected the most revenue per gallon; had the lowest outlet density and had the second lowest per capita consumption; and the Program Evaluation Division expects retail liquor consumption to increase by 20 with privatization based on 1,000 expected outlets. It was requested that the Board adopt a resolution in support of the current Alcoholic Beverage Control System for the sale of liquor, which is attached to these minutes as Attachment A.

Nash Brick Company Refund Request

No additional detail provided

C.
Shane Lynch, County Assessor, addressed the Board regarding a letter dated February 15, 2019 from Nash Brick Company requesting a refund request in the amount of 59,601.38 for overpayment during the tax years of 2012 through 2017 along with the Taxpayer Remedies Statute N. C. G. S. 105-381, which had been provided for the Board s review. Upon receipt of a business personal property listing from a taxpayer or agent, the Tax Department assumes that the information was valid and was assessed based on the information provided by taxpayers. The Tax Department was not aware of the manufacturing status or whether equipment had been replaced, abandoned, or sold as the business personal property listings did not reference that information. It was the taxpayer's responsibility to review and submit an accurate listing each year. Pursuant to N. C. G. S. 105-381, the Board could approve a refund if the tax was imposed through clerical error, was an illegal tax, or a tax levied for an illegal purpose.

Tom Fisher, Nash Brick Company President, addressed the Board stating that he purchased the Nash Brick Company on October 1, 1987 and the facility closed its manufacturing facilities in August 2015 due to the facility being old and out-of-date and it would cost approximately 700,000 to repair and upgrade machinery and equipment in order to make bricks. In July 2017, an exorbitant property tax bill was noticed for 2016 for the brick plant that was more than 60 years old in the amount of 26,055.11. James L. McMillan, CPA, was hired to investigate and reported errors in real estate appraisals and numerous errors in retiring old, fully- depreciated equipment that had been replaced, abandoned, or sold. After providing Halifax County officials with a schedule of items retired prior to 2012, a meeting was held with Shane Lynch, County Assessor, to discuss the refunds for 2012 through 2017. He requested that the Board approve the refund request for Nash Brick Company in the amount of 59,601.38. Commissioner Johnson moved to deny the refund request from Nash Brick Company in the amount of 59,601.38. Commissioner Qualls seconded the motion, which passed unanimously by voice vote.

Denton, Deputy County Manager, addressed the Board stating that the project to build a new facility for the Halifax County 911 Public Safety Answering Point and Regional Back-up Center Project was moving forward. A request for qualifications was advertised on April 11, 2019 in The Daily Herald and The News and Observer. A direct solicitation was sent to five firms identified as having relevant experience that could choose to submit qualifications, which were due on April 25, 2019. Six firms responded and staff along with representatives from Mission Critical Partners met on April 29, 2019 to review the submissions. Staff met with the top firm on the list, Stewart Cooper Newell Architects, which had the most experience both in building 911 center facilities as well as working with North Carolina 911 grants. It was requested that the Board authorize staff to negotiate and execute a contract with Stewart Cooper Newell Architects to provide architectural and engineering services for the Halifax County 911 Public Safety Answering Point and Regional Back-up Center Project. It was further requested that if a contract could not be successfully negotiated and executed that staff would work with the second firm on the list. Commissioner Qualls moved to authorize staff to negotiate and execute a contract with Stewart Cooper Newell Architects to provide architectural and engineering services for the Halifax County 911 Public Safety Answering Point and Regional Back-up Center Project.

County requesting that the Board adopt a resolution in support of healthcare for Eastern North Carolina and funding for Vidant Health. The North Carolina Senate proposed budget cuts Vidant Medical Center's medicaid reimbursement by approximately 35 Million beginning July 1, 2019. The resolution opposes cuts to funding for Vidant Health as the teaching hospital for the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, and urges the North Carolina General Assembly to keep in place funding necessary to assure access to high quality healthcare for all people in eastern North Carolina. The Halifax Regional Medical Center was now Vidant Halifax and the proposed cuts would have a negative impact on revenues for the hospital. It was requested that the Board adopt the resolution in support of healthcare for Eastern North Carolina and funding for Vidant Health, which is attached to these minutes as Attachment G.
