We'll Let YOU Pay For It Because WE Don't

Sealevel Systems pays a reduced tax called a "fee in lieu of taxes" ...

Total taxes paid: $10,097
Total bill if they were NOT getting this tax break: $17,430

Roughly 58% of business taxes in Pickens County goes to the schools.

According to Pickens County Auditor, Brent Suddeth Sealevel's School taxes would be broken down thusly:

Operating $4804.01

School Bonds $2281.90

(out of their $10,097 paid)

If Sealevel weren't paying this fee in lieu of taxes, their total tax bill would be:


This would bring in an additional $4,250+ of revenue DIRECTLY to the school district if Tom O'Hanlan were doing with his multimillion dollar business what he's asking the average below poverty line citizen in Pickens County to do.
