Iowa RV Dealer Seeks Tax Break for Move to Ill.
An Iowa-based RV dealer is asking for a tax break should it relocate to St. Charles, Ill.
According to a report by the Kane County Chronicle, Economic Development Director Chris Aiston on Monday (Jan. 14) told the Planning and Development Committee it would be great to have a business such as US Adventure RV in the city. In addition to generating business and bolstering existing businesses, he said, the RV company would make use of an underused building.
“This is our shot at it now,” Aiston said.
US Adventure RV, currently based in Davenport, Iowa, is considering leasing about 8,000 square feet of the Fox River Harley-Davidson building in St. Charles. It operates a satellite location in Joliet, and moving to St. Charles would bring the company closer to its customers in the northwest suburbs, company President John Dresselhaus said.
Moving costs are estimated at $590,000. US Adventure RV has asked St. Charles to reimburse a portion of anticipated sales tax revenues not to exceed $250,000 or for a period of six years, whichever happens first.
