We do not offer tax advice
by: Tower Genius

Diane you need to ask a CPA. However I can tell you that most cell site leases have tax language and provisions that state that the carriers will pay for increases in property taxes which are related to telecommunications improvements on your premises.

We find that the tax language in most cell tower leases is too broad and doesn't really provide the level of protection for landlords we are happy with, so we generally craft our own language that carriers and tower companies usually accept after we explain it to them. Please let us know if we can help your condo with the lease.
