    Don't forget Churches! btw non-profit organization are joke and most of the non-profit organization take in millions/thousands and pay there CEO's 250k a year kinda like the lady that runs Red Cross:rolleyes:

    If you take in any money you should be taxed on it weather or not your a church/college/non-profit cause in the end someone is making money and if your making money you should be taxed on it.

    There's no such thing as non-profit;)

    Well if there pulling in millions like some of these churches.....good i'm all for it:singing:

    You don't run a church to get a tax break, I'm not sure who said it but someone once said that if you want make money, start a church lol

    P.S Found it, L Ron Hubbard said "The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion."

    Religions are all about controlling people and taking their money. That's one reason liberalism is a religion.

    I agree.....and then after that, they can take 90% of the Avon Breast Cancer walks, and when they pull up to the drive thru at macdonalds, they can take 90% of whats in the box under the window........then they can take $$ from the jimmy fund, too........a few more, and they might balance the budget

    Ignorance is bliss:cool:

    Oh and BTW don't matter how old you are or how young you are, Idea's are not prejudice by age.

    Some of the smartest ppl in the world are 30 and below, little food for thought:)

    "a few more, and they might balance the budget"

    I laughed:D I hate taxes like everyone eles and i'm all for tax reform but I understand why we have them and there important the main problem is the ppl running the show, they get all these taxes and what do the do? waste it on stupid goverment programs that don't work. If you where to clean up system my bet is alot of thouse programs would work.

    Ambivalent about taxing college students, in Providence between Brown, RISD, Johnson and Wales and PC there are a ton of kids who demand a lot of public resources..

    On one hand they tax existing resources and on the other by being here they spend money that is taxed.. not sure the answer, but RI has been in serious difficulty with tax revenue for a long time now. This is just another suggestion to try to close the gap, without diminishing services.

    No "Payment in Lieu of Taxes"(AKA "PILOT") payments by the schools down there to offset some of the costs for basic needs(police, fire, EMS, public works etc.)?

    Not that I am aware of, the Prov. Colleges and Universities are very similar to the Boston situation.. as they are all integrated into local neighborhoods.... all of the students and infrastructure require a lot of city services..
