Disney to get $1.3M refund after settling extended tax dispute

The Mouse is poised to get several million dollars in tax refunds now that a yearslong dispute between Disney World and the property appraiser’s office is over, officials said.

Disney will receive a $1.3 million tax refund after the company paid about $23 million in property taxes in 2015 for its four theme parks and 10 other parcels involved in a lawsuit, according to the Orange County tax collector’s office.

Orange County Property Appraiser Amy Mercado said she expects Disney to get additional tax refunds for 2016 to 2020 as well, but she did not provide details on how much the company would receive. County Tax Collector Scott Randolph said Monday he hasn’t received the certificate of corrections to determine the amount of the refunds.

Disney could not be reached for comment late Monday.
