Travis County says Austin never consulted it on Precourt tax exemption, threatens to sue to block it
Oh hey, guess what? In its haste to approve a $100 million tax exemption for a new stadium for the soon-to-be-erstwhile Columbus Crew , the Austin city council neglected to consult Travis County, which would also be giving up a cut of taxes under the proposed deal. And Travis County commissioners are having none of it, threatening to sue to force the MLS team to pay taxes on its stadium if necessary : On Tuesday, Travis County commissioners unanimously voted to "authorize the county attorney to preserve the county's right to challenge the tax-exempt status of the stadium company's use of city property."
