Wis. Supreme Court upholds taxes on Nestle plant

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court says state tax assessors properly calculated the value of a Nestle baby formula plant in Eau Claire.

Nestle disagreed with state Department of Revenue assessments in 2003 and 2004 that found the Gateway Plant was worth about $10.9 million. The company disputed that figure, saying no market exists for baby formula plants and the facility would likely be sold as a food processing plant, making it worth about $3.5 million.

The Supreme Court ruled Nestle didn’t produce enough evidence to show no market exists and DOR assessed the property correctly.
