On September 11, a Ropes & Gray team secured a significant victory on behalf of Veolia Energy Boston, Inc. in the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts.
Affirming a 2016 decision by the state Appellate Tax Board and denying the Boston Board of Assessors' appeal, the court ruled that Veolia will be refunded $1.96 million in personal property taxes paid to the city of Boston. The court concluded that Veolia’s system of underground steam pipes was considered machinery and exempt from taxation.
