Colorado Springs airport nearly loses part of infrastructure after tax error

It has emerged recently that Colorado Springs Airport in the US state of Colorado nearly lost part of its infrastructure when it realised that its cargo terminal was due to be sold off to a third-party.

The air cargo terminal and freight handling facility at the airport was due to be sold off as tax had not been paid. However, the city whom operates the airport stated it was not told about the tax bill when MDC Colorado, whom had the lease on the infrastructure, stopped paying.

It was said repeated notices of tax were sent to the company which were not then forwarded to the city.

The city currently owns the facility. It is pursuing legal action against MDC for not disclosing the tax and committing fraud.
