The assessments presented may be gross assessments. Net assessments would subtract out exemptions including the phase-in exemption for the revaluation. 3 of the top 4 had some large multi-year exemptions. In other words, one cannot derive the tax obligations of these property owners based on the assessments above.

That's correct, Bill. These are the gross assessments - Walgreens, Hartford Financial and ING are the only companies on the list that have received exemptions. The exemptions for each are as follows: Walgreens - $89,542,320 Hartford Financial - $45,999,702 ING - $41,742,470 Subtracting the exemption from their respective total values will produce their net values.

The proposed property for Dollar Tree which is owned by Griffin Land -they paid a whopping $2,600 for all of that land in taxes. Really?
