Enterprise Leasing Co. of Minn. v. County of HennepinAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the judgments of the tax court declining to include a "concession fee" as rental income attributable to the properties in this case under the income-capitalization approach to property valuation, holding that the tax court did not err.
At issue was Hennepin County's valuation of the respective properties owned by Enterprise Leasing Company of Minnesota and Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The tax court disagreed with Hennepin County's approach, decided not to include the concession fee as rental income, and estimated a market value in each case that was lower than the value that the County sought at trial. The Supreme Court affirmed in both cases, holding that the tax court did not clearly err in excluding the concession fee from rental income.
