Bethlehem Steel Corp.ís property tax bill in Porter County totaled $20.4 million this year, divided as follows to the local taxing units:

Duneland School Corp.: $13.6 million

County government: $4.03 million

Town of Burns Harbor: $1.2 million

Porter County Library: $23,578

Westchester Township: $19,691

Portage Township: $18,076

City of Portage: $244,429

State: $20,455

County Airport: $80,972

The figures are estimates only, compiled by the Porter County Auditorís office. Bethlehem already paid one-half of its bill, so each taxing unit is still due one-half of each amount listed.

The countyís Property Tax Adjustment Board of Appeals is scheduled to hear Bethlehem Steel Corp.ís appeal of its real estate assessed valuation on Thursday.
