Minnesota Nonprofits Worried after Minnesota Supreme Court's Definition of "Charity"

Two weeks ago, we BLOGGed the Minnesota Suprem Court's decision in Under the Rainbow Childcare Center, Inc.  In that case, a 4-3 majority ruled that a nonprofit could not be deemed "charitable" for purposes of the state's constitutional exemption from taxes (including property taxes) unless the nonprofit provided its goods or services free or at reduced charges.  Minnesota Public Radio today reports (real player audio file) on reaction within the Minnesota nonprofit community.  The report notes that one nonprofit is now worried that it will have to come up with at least $100,000 to pay property taxes.
