Pennsylvania Communities Targeting Nonprofit Hospitals for New Revenue

Pennsylvania Communities Targeting Nonprofit Hospitals for New Revenue

Printer-friendly version

Hospitals in Erie County, Pennsylvania are facing property taxes and demands for payments in lieu of taxes (PILOTs) to the county. The Millcreek Community Hospital lost its tax exemption after the Board of Tax Assessment Appeals unanimously decided it did not meet the five criteria for tax exemption under a Pennsylvania Supreme Court case. The hospital property is assessed at $18.9 million, subjecting it to a potential tax of more than $424,000. Saint Vincent Hospital is seeking approval to continue its PILOT for the next five years. Saint Vincent has been in PILOT deals with the county since the 1990s. The current agreement would commit the hospital to paying about $727,000 per year, apportioned to the school district, city, and county.
