Has there been any movement of Penn State University to the south of College Avenue and do these properties pay Real Estate Taxes?
Penn State has purchased property south of College Avenue in the past. Whether or not the properties pay taxes is dependent on how the property is used. Penn State makes a Payment in Lieu of Taxes for any property that is used for non-university purposes. Over the past year, the only property that has transferred to Penn State is the College Heights Elementary School. The College Heights school was tax exempt before the transfer and it will continue to be tax exempt.
