Good Neighbor City Council Testimony

On May 23rd, Gwen Snyder, the Executive Director of Philadelphia Jobs with Justice, testified at City Hall for the City Council Committee on Finance in support of bill 130123. This bill provides standards for tax exemptions for nonprofits by requiring land-owning nonprofits to annually file a statement to the Office of Property Assessment. If the nonprofit were not using its land charitably, then it would have to pay property taxes.
