This class will discuss and review the implications of the meaning of “purely public charity” post Mesivtah Eitz Chaim of Bobov Inc. v. Pike County Board of Assessment Appeals. Participants will hear from nonprofit experts about whether or not the recent Pennsylvania Supreme Court opinion sets a new standard for defining when a nonprofit organization qualifies for sales and property tax exemptions. Panelists will look into whether legislative action could reverse the court’s holding or weaken the impact of the Mesivtah case; explore the possibility that charities will be scrutinized and have their tax-exempt status reversed; and offer strategies to applying for tax exempt status for a charitable organization in ways that effectively ensure a grant of exemption.
