Storage Plant of the Lehigh Val
ley at South PlainfieJd has
been Overlooked.
New Assessor in Piscataway Township
made Important Discovery? Authorities
Thought the Railroad Was Paying a
State Tax but Learn Differently? Means
Much to the County.
For the past eleven years the Lehigh
Valley railroad has paid no tax on
their vast storage grounds at Sonth
Plainfield. This has been discovered
by George E. Bating who has jnst
been elected tax assessor for Piscat
away township in which the storage
grounds are located.
Upon inqniry he learned that the
township has been of the opinion that
the State levies a tax for this big
storage business. He also learned
that the State has no jurisdiction and
that it has not been levying any tax
upon it.
The assessor has consulted Lawyer
Harry Ranyon, of Plainfield, con
cerning the matter and an investiga
tion is now on to determine the town
ship's rfght to assess this property
and its right to collect back taxes.
Lawyer Rnnyon today said that lie
thought the township's claim a good
The property is very valuable and
some interested people claim that its
valuation will amount to as much as
the valuation of all the rest of the
The net valuation of the township
last year was $1,514,401. If the Le
high's plant is worth as much, the
tax* buTden other people of Piscat
away town will not be as great.
The matter will doubtless be sifted
thoroughly next month ;when the
County Board of Assessors meet to
make proper adjustment of the amount
of taxes to be raised.
