A nonprofit sales tax has caused confusion and worse: Three new bills may help

“You know, when you open up the tax code, wonderful things can happen and awful things can happen,” said Danielle Clore, the CEO of Kentucky Nonprofit Network, whose organization supports all three bills. “We know the only real fix is a legislative fix that is free of wiggle room, and so that is what we will be seeking.”

Given the influence of nonprofits on the economy, everyday Kentuckians might see the effects.

According to the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, nonprofits employ one in 11 Kentuckians and provide 9.9 percent of all Kentucky wages, making them a major contributor to the economic health of the state. In addition, a lot of these organizations help to deliver needed services to those in need, a job usually relegated to governments. When they see a downtick in financial contributions, both their employees and their clients may see reductions in pay and assistance.
