Oregon: "Co-op owes $7.3 million in back taxes"

"Pegasus Communications stock held by Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative, valued at $21.7 million in 2001, is today worth $2.8 million. A press release issued by the co-op Monday said Coos-Curry Electric owes more than $7.3 million in back taxes, interest and penalties on that stock. The amount exceeds 10 percent of the co-op's total assets of $68 million."

"The taxes are due by October 15, but co-op General Manager Jim Arntz told the Pilot Tuesday that negotiations are already under way to borrow the money from its primary lender, the Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC). It already owes CFC $21 million."

This is a longer, more detailed article on the the tax liability Coos-Curry Electric incurred when it exited the satellite dish business.
