The Treasury Department has softened the blow this tax year; the USCCB welcomed the move but renewed its call for the new tax’s repeal.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

Let me get this straight. The "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" would do the opposite of cutting taxes on tax-exempt organizations: this Act imposes new taxes where they did not exist before. Did government just get larger or smaller because of this "cost cutting" measure? Seems like another example of legislative double speak.

Glad to hear that the US bishops are energized and determined about **something**. But then, the issue is money, so perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.
