Property owner is underwater

BMARSHALL COUNTY - A local resident is under water on taxes - literally.

Jean Klinedinst - a resident of Kreighbaum Lake is hoping to get some relief on her property taxes from Marshall County. Klinedinst bought property on the lake three years ago and exploring the high rate of taxes discovered an interesting fact - the four parcels of land she owns also include the surrounding lake bed.

She and her husband own 23 acres of land on the lake and 18 acres of that is actually in the lake.

“We are actually paying taxes on water,” she told the Marshall County Commissioners hoping for a resolution to the matter.
