"The whole country is watching New Jersey in this area," said David Thompson, vice president of the National Council of Nonprofits. With Tax Court Judge Vito Bianco’s ruling last June establishing a precedent, municipalities — bound by a 2 percent state cap on annual property-tax increases — have sued to protect their ability to increase tax revenues.

The vulnerability of hospitals as well as other non-profits, including nursing homes and universities, to such potential taxation, "is a very great concern," Linda Czipo, executive director of the New Jersey Center for Non-Profits, said Tuesday during a teleconference about the state of the non-profit world in New Jersey.
