So... a financially troubled park will pay a ton in court costs AND possibly the $2.5 million. Hmm.. something tells be it'd be easier / cost-effective to just pay the $2.5 million and move on.

"a permanent fabrication or construction, other than a building, that is attached or affixed to land, and that increases or enhances utilization or enjoyment of the land." If they ever moved the ride then would they pay the tax?

From what I gathered in the article, the issue isn't if the rides are permanent or not - it's whether the rides enhance the intrinsic value/enjoyment of the land itself.. as it says in the article - if someone were to purchase the land with a different business than amusements, would they still benefit from the improvement? Most likely not, IMO

Jeff's avatar The "park" doesn't have to pay anything new. This is the former owner, Six Flags.
