“Could a $10 sale mean no more taxes for Noah’s Ark theme park?”

The bilking of gullible Kentucky taxpayers continues.

As per the article: “On June 29, Williamstown City Attorney Jeffrey Shipp sent a letter to the Biblical amusement park Ark Encounter, rejecting their request to be exempted from a new safety tax because they are a religious organization.

Shipp said it was clear that Ark Encounter is a for-profit entity, which is how it has been listed with the Secretary of State’s office since 2011.

But the day before, Ark Encounter LLC sold its main parcel of land — the one with the life-size Noah’s Ark — for $10 to their non-profit affiliate, Crosswater Canyon. Although the property is worth $48 million according to the Grant County Property Valuation Administrator, the deed says its value is only $18.5 million.

That’s the latest salvo in an escalating argument between local officials and Ark Encounter, but some are worried Ark Encounter’s maneuver is a precursor to declaring itself exempt from all taxes, including property taxes that help fund Grant County schools."

I'm not going to lie - when I was younger I did wonder if Joseph was perhaps gay based on his amazing technicolour dreamcoat.

That's a good idea--in fact, why not technicolor dreamcoat the entire bible?

Often incoherent. Tends to ramble on about various topics.
Hopes to get beyond that.
