MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin Supreme Court is letting stand a lower court decision that Xerox Corp. must pay property taxes on some office equipment leased to customers.
Xerox argued that stand-alone devices that can print, copy, fax and scan should be considered computers and therefore exempted from property taxes under state law.
A state appeals court in July ruled the devices are not computers and therefore are taxable.
The case involved property valued at US$8.3 million for tax purposes in the cities of Milwaukee and La Crosse. Xerox was seeking a refund on US$104,000 worth of taxes from the cities.
Xerox appealed to the high court, but justices said last week they would not hear the case.
Xerox is based in Norwalk, Conn.
