HOWARD COUNTY - Back to the courtroom for Howard County and their biggest tax payer.

The ALON refinery and County appraisers are in a fight over their value.

Earlier this summer, Howard County said the refinery was worth more than what ALON thinks they are worth.

They've agreed to pay taxes on about 80 million dollars until the case is resolved.

In the meantime, taxpayers are making up the difference.
