Property Tax Annotations
560.0000 LEASED TO GOVERNMENT
560.0010 Federal Agency. Privately owned property leased to a federal agency is subject to local property taxation, the same as is property leased to the United States government. Regardless of whether the agency is a federal instrumentality, leased property, unlike property owned by the federal government, is not immune from state and local taxation. To be immune or exempt from property taxation, the federal agency must meet the specific constitutional requirement of property ownership with the agreement between the parties reflecting that the government agency has the full indicia of ownership.
