WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service has told the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority that $3.5 million of development revenue bonds it issued in 2005 to finance a manufacturing facility could be ­taxable.

The bonds were issued to finance a 52,500-square-foot manufacturing facility to build tractor trailer sleeper cabs for ­Truckland Ohio Holdings Inc., according to the preliminary offering statement. However, the facility has been closed, and comments from a Truckland ­employee raise doubts about whether it was ­intended to do much ­manufacturing.
