CCUSA asks Congress to remove provision in Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Alexandria, Va. (Nov. 14, 2018) –Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) joined leaders from diverse faiths representing a broad range of institutions, including houses of worship, educational institutions and faith-based nonprofit organizations, in asking Congress to remove the provision in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that would tax nonprofit organizations for the cost of parking and transit benefits provided to employees.

“Unless repealed, this provision will require tens of thousands of houses of worship to file tax returns for the first time in our nation’s history and will impose a new tax burden on houses of worship and nonprofit organizations.
Not only does this provision impose a new tax on nonprofits, this provision also burdens nonprofits and houses of worship with burdensome accounting and regulatory compliance costs.”
