Gilmour sale could add nearly $150,000 to the tax rolls

United Methodist Homes of Binghamton, a non-profit organization exempt from paying property tax, announced Wednesday it had approved the sale of Gilmour to an unnamed for-profit entity that operates several residential health care facilities throughout the state.
