Plainfield received $1.6 million last year through "payment in lieu of taxes" or PILOT agreements.
Most of the PILOT plans involved apartment complexes. Here's the list from the 2015 Municipal Data Sheet, with last year's anticipated revenues and what was realized in cash.
Presbyterian Homes, $170.000 anticipated, $170,142.03 realized.
Cedarbrook Apartments, $227,380 anticipated, $247.023 realized.
Liberty Village, 87,000 anticipated, $111,754.74 realized.
Leland Gardens, $260,000 anticipated, $269,933.19 realized.
Covenant House, $30,000 anticipated, $32,585.40 realized.
Horizon at Plainfield, $105,000 anticipated, $105,619.30 realized.
Allen-Young Apartments, $150,000 anticipated, $105,619.30
There was a listing for "Netherwood," presumably Netherwood Gardens, with no figures.
On a separate page for revenues, there were two listings for Park-Madison, the UCIA-owned office and commercial complex at West Front Street and Park Avenue. One lists anticipated revenues for 2014 as $386,000, with $391,336.82 realized. The other Park-Madison PILOT was expected to bring in $61,000 and realized $71,107.83.
See a post with 2008 PILOT figures here.
The city had several issues with the developer of the Park-Madison building, as noted in this 2006 Plaintalker post. To date, some remain unresolved, such as the clock placement. In 2013, UCIA Director Dan Sullivan handed over a check for $1.09 million representing a settlement over disputed PILOT payments and other issues.
Of course, these figures alone don't tell the whole story of PILOTs. In a state publication, former Comptroller A. Matthew Boxer calls for transparency at the inception of a PILOT and follow-up by the municipality to make sure they are working as intended. His report also found state guidance lacking on tax abatements.
The report is well worth reading by anyone interested in the use of tax abatements. It is A Programmatic Examination of Municipal Tax Abatements from the Office of the State Comptroller, published in 2010.
