Cap on Vermont tax deductions has nonprofits worried

Printer-friendly version

Lauren-Glenn Davitian, executive director of an organization that provides training and services to other nonprofit groups, Common Good Vermont, told the senators that "even in this very dire budget year, you have to be very mindful of decisions we make on capping these deductions, because they will have a secondary impact."

...

Davitian, citing information from the National Council of Nonprofits, said some other states had moved to cap deductions in recent years, but some — she pointed to Hawaii in particular — had reversed course when they saw the negative impacts. She urged that lawmakers gather more data before changing Vermont's policy.

"The policy decision is not actually informed by data," she said. "You can assume it's not going to have an impact, but it probably does, based on what's happening in other states."
