State Supreme Court To Hear Argument Over Who Gets Airport Taxes
" ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) —Just as the world’s busiest airport is about to open an international terminal and ultimately get even busier, the Georgia Supreme Court says it will consider a long-running feud over millions of dollars in taxes generated by Hartsfield Jackson International.

The justices will review a Georgia Court of Appeals decision that found that neighboring College Park should collect the taxes because the businesses, including the main terminal and parts of two concourses, were actually within its city limits.
