Continuing Debate on Boston's Revised PILOT Program

As previously blogged over a year ago, a Boston mayoral task force finalized a formula to calculate how much tax-exempt nonprofits should contribute to pay for city-provided benefits - police, fire, snow removal, and emergency medical treatment.  The Boston Globe reports that its Museum of Fine Arts director, who has been a public critic of the Mayor's plan to increase these "voluntary" payments, has issued a warning for museums across the country: “When civic leaders look to cultural organizations as a source of revenue, rather than as an invaluable resource for the communities they serve, it has dire implications nationwide.’’ The museum director contends that because it receives no city funding, it should be excepted from making the payments.
