BUXTON, N.D. -- An agriculture business has been hit with an unexpected tax bill after a Traill County city failed to act on a request for an exemption.

It’s unclear how much the Reynolds (N.D.) United Co-op will have to pay for its fertilizer plant in Buxton, but the notification they would have to pay a 2017 tax bill came as a shock, according to a report in the Hillsboro Banner. The tax bill could be close to $60,000, according to the report.

The company asked the city of Buxton to annex the co-op’s property into city limits and give it a five-year tax exemption, but city officials never acted on the requests, according to the report. The property falls under the jurisdiction of the Trail County tax director. The fertilizer plant sits just east of city limits.

Travis Hegg, a co-op employee who sits on the Buxton City Council, didn’t know how the city missed the request but called it “a big mess-up.”

Buxton is about 25 miles south of Grand Forks.
