Section 4-3-59

Exemption of bonds, property and income of authority from taxation; concessionaires, tenants, etc., of authority subject to state and local taxation; exemption from payment of deed recording fees and roll-back taxes.

The bonds issued by the authority and the income therefrom shall be exempt from all taxation in the state. All property and income of the authority shall be exempt from all state, county, municipal and other local taxation; provided however, that this exemption shall not be construed to exempt concessionaires, licensees, tenants, operators or lessees of the authority from the payment of any licenses or privilege taxes levied by the state, the county or any municipality in the state. Any deeds or other documents whereby properties are conveyed to the authority, any indentures executed by the authority and any leases made by the authority may be filed for record in the office of the judge of probate of the county without the payment of any tax or fees other than such fees as are prescribed by law for the recording of such instruments. In addition, the authority shall not be required to pay any tax resulting from the conversion of property qualified for assessment based on its current use value, with respect to either property conveyed to the authority or property sold or otherwise disposed of by the authority; provided, however, that this exemption shall not be construed to exempt from liability for such additional ad valorem taxes any person otherwise liable, under applicable provisions of law, for the payment of such taxes.
