  • Pipeline would pump $1.2M a year into taxing districts

    The Bluegrass Pipeline would pump an estimated $1.215 million a year into local taxing districts once it’s fully operational, according to data released by the company proposing to build it.

    If that’s the case and the funds are distributed as is other ad valorem tax revenue, the Anderson County School District would by far be the largest recipient and would receive an additional $766,422 each year from the pipeline, based on its current property tax rate at $5.52 per $1,000 of assessed value.
