How cell towers avoid paying property taxes.

Let's take one more look at the special exception application filed by T-Mobile in 2005 to build a cell tower on the Julius West Middle School playground. 

Look at the box (circled in red) that calls for the applicant to write in a tax account number.  The numbers on this application are for the property owner, the Montgomery County Board of Education. 

The Board of Education is exempt from paying property taxes, T-Mobile is not. 

By using the Board of Education's tax account number cell tower vendors have avoided paying property taxes on cell towers erected on public school land.
