HEBRON — A lawsuit brought by a private boarding school against the town of Hebron is scheduled to get under way.

Hebron Academy is seeking a return to tax-exempt status in its suit against the town expected to start today in Oxford County Superior Court.

The nearly 200-year-old prep school says in its complaint that it had tax-exempt status until 2009 when the town began taxing part of the school’s property, including its ice skating arena.

The town counters that the school rents out the arena for purposes unrelated to its tax exempt purpose.

The Sun Journal reports that the school is seeking a return to tax-exempt status and reimbursement of all tax money paid to the town.
