Dozens Of Nonprofits Denied Tax-Exempt Status As Towns And Cities Look For Revenue

Dozens Of Nonprofits Denied Tax-Exempt Status As Towns And Cities Look For Revenue

Printer-friendly version

Gian-Carl Casa, president and CEO of the Connecticut Community Nonprofit Alliance, said it’s a sign that towns and cities are desperate for revenue. And they think it’s a coordinated effort by assessors, in various parts of the state, to just begin assessing taxes on financially hard-pressed nonprofits. Casa said it’s disappointing and counterproductive.

“Eliminating the exemption from taxes just diverts funds from programs that go to people who may have developmental disabilities, people who are struggling with substance abuse, victims of domestic violence, arts and cultural programs,” Casa said. “The people served by nonprofits are the people who are going to end up losing because of this taxation effort.”
