A three-judge appeals court panel in Pennsylvania has given counties the green light to tax cell-phone towers.

That's a potential tax windfall in the millions.

Four years ago, officials in central Pennsylvania's Dauphin County decided to tax the towers and their support pads as real-estate.

Two Virginia companies that own towers objected, arguing the towers are personal property, not real-estate. Their attorney said they were already paying sales taxes on the income they generate and shouldn't have to pay both.

The court disagreed.
