*  Together LA Blocks Tax Exemptions, Wins Sunshine Provision | Industrial Areas Foundation
Eight months after their victory in reforming the state Industrial Tax Exemption Program (ITEP), leaders of Together Louisiana noticed that industrial tax exemptions spiked 441% in its last year (2016), with the majority of tax exemptions granted after the reforms passed. They additionally noticed that the Commerce and Industry Board reversed the wording of the measure to undermine the reform that would have limited exemptions to proposals that had secured the approval of the local municipalities sacrificing the revenue.. Unsatisfied with the explanation that the 2016 reforms were not to touch applications already in the works, 100 faith and community leaders of Together Louisiana organized a press conference before the Board of Commerce and Industry's meeting and then sat in on the meeting itself - demonstrating a rare ...

*  The Property Tax Exemption for Nonprofits - IssueLab
This paper reviews the existing literature on the property tax exemption for nonprofit organizations and identifies gaps to be addressed in future research. We start by examining justifications and existing eligibility criteria for the property tax exemption, followed by studies of the magnitude of the revenue loss from the exemption. We focus on theoretical and empirical studies of the economic effects of the exemption. We consider the effect of the tax advantage on nonprofit decisions about inputs, outputs and organizational form, decisions to rent or own, location decision, market share, and the effect of the exemption on neighboring property values. Finally, we evaluate research about the use of PILOTs and the implications of their possible expansion. We conclude that ...

*  How the estate tax exemption works - NJMoneyHelp.com
A. The estate tax can certainly be confusing.. A federal estate tax is imposed only on that portion of the estate's value that exceeds the exemption amount, said Shirley Whitenack, an estate planning attorney with Schenck, Price, Smith & King in Florham Park.. For 2017, the federal amount exempted from death taxes is $5.49 million, and the top federal estate tax rate is 40 percent, she said.. The answer is more complicated for New Jersey's estate tax.. Whitenack said the New Jersey estate tax exemption was increased from $675,000 to $2 million for the year 2017, and it's scheduled to be repealed entirely effective Jan. 1, 2018.. "For estates of New Jersey residents who die in 2017, the estate tax is calculated on the amount ...

Texas officials have agreed to extend tax-exempt status to a non-theistic church.. In mid May, the Texas Office of the Comptroller sent a letter to Americans United for Separation of Church and State announcing it had granted tax-exempt status to the Church of Freethought, a Dallas-area congregation. Americans United intervened on behalf of the congregation after the state tax agency had initially denied its request for tax exemption. In a press statement praising the Texas agency's reversal, Americans United Executive Director Barry W. Lynn said, "This is a victory for religious freedom. Government must never play favorites when it comes to religion." The Church of Freethought enjoys federal tax-exempt status, but was unable to obtain similar status in Texas. The ...

*  The Importance of Group Coverage: How Tax Policy Shaped U.S. Health Insurance
In 1954, the Internal Revenue Service stipulated that employer contributions to the health insurance plans of their employees were to be excluded from employee taxable income. Today, the tax subsidy is major feature of the U.S. health care market. This paper examines the initial effects of the tax subsidy on the demand for health insurance using previously unexamined data from 1953 and 1958. Results suggest that the tax subsidy increased the growth of group insurance, particularly among union members and employed persons. This is a critical effect because group insurance is not only less expensive than individual insurance, but it is also easier to obtain, and households with access to group health insurance are far more likely to purchase health insurance coverage than those without similar access. By increasing access to group insurance, the ...
