Finally, I further determine that any state or local laws to the contrary are hereby preempted. The exemption from real estate taxes provided by this designation and determination shall apply to taxes that have been or will be assessed against TECRO’s primary office, one of its subsidiary offices, the head of such an office, a component of such an office, or the authorities on Taiwan with respect to property subject to this determination, and shall nullify any existing tax liens with respect to any covered property. This determination shall not require the refund of any taxes previously paid by TECRO’s primary office, one of its subsidiary offices, the head of such an office, a component of such an office, or the authorities on Taiwan regarding such property. These actions are not exclusive and are independent of alternative legal grounds that support the tax exemptions afforded herein. The actions taken in this Designation and Determination are necessary to protect the interests of the United States and to adjust for costs and procedures of obtaining benefits for AIT. Dated: March 9, 2014. Patrick F. Kennedy, Under Secretary for Management.
