SB18-070 Church Property Tax Exemption

Freedom of Expression & Religion
Bill Number: SB18-070
Year: 2018
ACLU Position: Oppose
Sponsors: S. Humphrey/T. Leonard/T. Neville

Description:

Under the state constitution, property that is used solely and
exclusively for religious worship is exempt from property tax, unless
otherwise provided by general law. By statute, the property must be
owned and used solely and exclusively for religious purposes to qualify
for the exemption. The bill eliminates the ownership requirement, which
is not expressly included in the state constitution, so that a property leased
to a church or other organization that uses it solely and exclusively for
religious purposes is exempt from property tax.


Current Status:

Senate Committee on Finance Refer Unamended to Appropriations (01/25/2018)
