  • Wilkes-Barre Area, Luzerne County to pursue getting downtown office building on tax rolls

The county kept the parcel in tax-exempt status in 1996, when the city leased the land beneath the historic structure to Philadelphia-based Welles Street Associates II, L.P. Government entities are tax-exempt. But Anstett said the city concluded the structure - known as an improvement in assessment - should be taxable because it was being run by Welles Street Associates, a for-profit corporation, Anstett said.
