Background Discussion
  • On September 9, 2003, the Board of County Commissioners approved the concept of returning the County portion of property taxes paid by the City of Bradenton on Pirate City property.
  • Due to a Florida Supreme Court ruling, municipalities had to begin paying property taxes on sports facilities that they lease to professional sports franchises.
  • Actual taxes paid for the County portion of property taxes on the Pirate City property by the City Bradenton for 2015 was $28,885.63, and the City has requested these funds be refunded.
