Charlotte Business Journal, Charlotte Law Delinquent on $148K in Taxes; School Says Check Issued:
Charlotte School of Law is delinquent on its property taxes for its uptown campus.
A tax bill shows that the for-profit law school owes $148,227.63 as of Friday. Charlotte Law is located at 201 S. College St.
“A check for the outstanding Meck County property taxes has been cut. The county should receive full payment in the next few business days,” spokeswoman Victoria Taylor told the Charlotte Business Journal Friday.
The news comes as Charlotte Law is working to keep its doors open after the U.S. Department of Education terminated its access to federal student loans. Nearly 950 students received $48.5 million in federal aid during 2015-16. It also remains on probation after the American Bar Association cited concerns about Charlotte Law’s admission policy standards and first-time bar passage rate.
