Anne Arundel council plans public hearing, possible vote on Maryland casino property tax reliefChase Cook, Capital Gazette · November 5, 2017 at 11:16 pm The Anne Arundel County Council will hold a public hearing and could vote Monday on legislation that would grant up to $36 million in property tax relief to the Live Casino and Hotel in exchange for a larger convention center at the site.The legislation was proposed by County Executive Steve Schuh to aid in the construction of a convention center that would serve as the location for county high school graduations. roposed as a payment in lieu of taxes bill, the legislation would forgive property taxes up to $1.2 million for 30 years. The Cordish Cos. would pay $1 a year as part of the deal. Any property taxes over $1.2 million would be paid to the county. Officials have estimated the property taxes forgiven would fall below the maximum allowable.David Cordish, The Cordish Cos. CEO and chairman, said Friday the deal was a win for the county because it would cost millions more to build its own convention center. His company has to pay for the upkeep of the facility in perpetuity.
