The death of Maersk could cost the municipality of Gentofte high
Thursday, 19 April 2012
Citizens in Gentofte Municipality risk that the municipal taxes must be raised by up to one percentage point in the wake of the shipping magnate Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller's death.
The newspaper, Borsen reports on Thursday report that the reason is that the business man annually paid a three-digit million amount in council tax to the municipality and now that he is dead, that money must now be waved goodbye to.
According to a city council politician in Gentofte, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller's payment was around Dkr150 million annually.
Gentofte Municipality, together with Rudersdal are the counties with the lowest tax rate last year and it stood at 22.8 percent.
Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller lived for years on Mosehøjvej in Charlottenlund. He has been according to the media acquired all 15 other houses in the neighbourhood. A large proportion of them have since been demolished and turned into green spaces in extension of the property on Mosehøjvej.
