Tyson goes to court to get interest on tax overpayment to city of Norfolk


There are two new developments in the story of Norfolk, Nebraska, business mistakenly paying the city more than $500,000 in taxes.

We now know that the business, which was overcharged, is Tyson Fresh Meats.

Tyson operated a plant, in Norfolk, until 2006.

The alleged overpayment came between 1999 and 2005, before the plant closed.

We have also learned that Tyson has filed a petition, in district court.

On March 6th, Nebraska's Department of Revenue refunded the $544,000 Tyson overpaid.

The company got the money two days later.

But, Tyson has gone to court because it wasn't awarded any interest on the overpayment.

City officials didn't know about the overpayment because the tax money went to the state, and was then disbursed to the city.
