Bad idea to tax non-profit, church-affiliated agencies.

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

Regarding the story, “Mayor’s 2010 full of resolve: Tax options, trash pact among key challenges” (Jan. 1):

The Urban Mayor’s Caucus of Indiana, led by Fort Wayne’s own Mayor Tom Henry, is lobbying to tax non-profit and church-affiliated organizations to make up for the cities’ revenue deficiencies. It is shortsighted and bad policy to think of taxing the entities that provide the services governments cannot and will not effectively provide. These services aren’t just nice for the community; they are basic and vital.
