Delaware County Challenges Tax-Exempt Springfield Country Club Property

Delaware County is challenging the tax abatement arrangement for the Marriott at the Springfield Country Club. An appeal hearing is scheduled for October 26th at the Government Center in Media. The Marriott at the Country Club has been making “payment in lieu of taxes” (PILOT) for years; however, this arrangement is designed to be used by large, non-profit entities. This year the school district received about $30,000, but at the 2021 tax rate, should have paid roughly $200,000.
