Welfare Aspect of Religious Properties
Andrea Whiteford & Jared Gregory
California property tax laws provide for three exemption types that may be applicable to property used for religious purposes. This class will provide a brief overview of the three types and then specifically focus on the broadest of these exemptions, the Welfare Exemption, as it applies to property used for religious purposes. Scenarios will be included for the purpose of demonstrating what uses would, and potentially would not, fall within the scope of the Welfare Exemption.
