TAXES AND ASSESSMENTS

(a) Tenant shall pay to Landlord as additional rent, within fifteen (15) days after Landlord shall bill Tenant therefor (such billing to be accompanied by such reasonable supporting information as Tenant shall request), as the same become due and payable, all real estate taxes, special and general assessments and other governmental charges of any kind and nature whatsoever, ordinary or extraordinary, which shall be assessed, levied or imposed upon or become due and payable in connection with, or a lien upon, the Demised Premises or any part thereof (all of such taxes, assessments and other governmental charges are hereinafter referred to as "Impositions").

Landlord shall pay all Impositions on or before the due date thereof and shall provide Tenant with evidence of such payment. If Landlord shall not pay any Imposition (including any Imposition on a larger parcel of which the Demised Premises are a part) and such failure shall continue for fifteen (15) days after Tenant shall have given Landlord notice thereof, Tenant may pay such Imposition and may deduct the amount thereof allocable to all portions of such larger parcel other than the Demised Premises (and, if Tenant shall have previously paid to Landlord the Impositions allocable to the Demised Premises, the amount of all such Impositions) from any rent or other sums payable under this Lease at any time thereafter.

If the Demised Premises are separately assessed and if Landlord or Tenant so elects, Landlord will deliver all bills for Impositions to Tenant, and Tenant shall be responsible for the payment thereof directly to the taxing authority. In no event shall Tenant be liable for any payment until after fifteen (15) days after Landlord shall have delivered the bill therefor to Tenant, and if any penalty or interest shall accrue because Landlord shall not have timely delivered any such bill to Tenant, Landlord shall pay such penalty or interest.

(b) If by law, any Imposition is payable, or may at the option of the taxpayer be paid, in installments (whether or not any interest shall accrue on the unpaid balance of such Imposition), unless Tenant shall otherwise direct, Landlord shall elect to pay the same in installments, and Tenant shall pay the same, together with any accrued interest on the unpaid balance of such Imposition, in installments as the same respectively become due and payable, and Tenant's liability shall be limited to installments which are payable during the term of this Lease.

(c) All Impositions payable by Tenant for the year in which the Term Commencement Date shall occur and for the year in which the Lease term shall expire or otherwise terminate shall be prorated. In determining the amount of payments to be made by Tenant pursuant to this Article V, there shall be appropriate adjustments for all abatements, credits and refunds relating to Impositions for such year, after there shall have been first deducted therefrom all reasonable expenses incurred in obtaining such abatement, credit or refund.

(d) In the event that Tenant shall be entitled to any credits, refunds or rebates on account of any Impositions, such credit, refund or rebate shall belong to Tenant, subject, however to paragraph (c) of this Article V. Any such credits, refunds or rebates received by Landlord shall be deemed trust funds and as such shall be received by Landlord in trust and paid to Tenant forthwith after receipt thereof, provided, however, that if any past due rent shall be payable to Landlord, Landlord shall be entitled to deduct such past due rent from any sums otherwise payable to Tenant hereunder. Landlord will, upon the request of Tenant, execute and deliver any receipts which may be necessary to secure the payment of any such credit, refund or rebate.

(e) Tenant shall not be required to pay any tax on the rent paid to Landlord or any inheritance, estate, succession or transfer taxes under any existing or future law which may be payable by reason of the devolution by descent or testamentary disposition of the Landlord's estate in the Demised Premises, and Tenant shall not be required to pay any income, gift or capital levy or excess profits tax that may be payable by Landlord under any existing or future law.

(f) In the event the Demised Premises shall not be separately assessed for the purpose of any Impositions which Tenant is required to pay under this Lease, the same shall be allocated between the Demised Premises and the balance of the property with which the Demised Premises shall be assessed as follows:

(i) Impositions relating to land shall be multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which shall be the land area included in the Demised Premises and the denominator of which shall be the total land area of the Demised Premises and such other property with which the Demised Premises shall be assessed, and the result shall be allocated to the Demised Premises; and

(ii) Impositions relating to buildings and other improvements shall be allocated to the Demised Premises according to the records of the municipal assessors. To the extent such records shall not provide for such allocation, Landlord shall make an appropriate allocation between the Demised Premises and the balance of the property with which the Demised Premises shall be assessed, provided, however, that Tenant shall have the right to object to any such allocation made by Landlord within thirty (30) days after Landlord shall have notified Tenant thereof, and in the event Tenant shall object, such matter shall be submitted to arbitration.
