San Francisco archdiocese loses appeal of tax assessment
Catholic World News - December 01, 2009
The Archdiocese of San Francisco faces a $14 million tax bill, after a city appeals board rejected a Church appeal of property-transfer tax assessments. The archdiocese had argued that the transfer taxes-- ordinarily imposed when property changes hands-- should not be applied, because the archdiocese was merely reconfiguring assets among different Church-controlled corporations.
