Does a non-profit organization have to pay property taxes?

0

Qualifying non-profit organizations may have their property taxes cancelled. The most common qualifying entities are: religious, fraternal, literary, benevolent, or charitable organizations and scientific institutions. Property for which an exemption is requested must be actively occupied and used by the organization in a way that furthers its stated purpose. The property must also be reasonably necessary. Any portion of the property that does not meet these criteria is subject to assessment and taxation the same as all other taxable property. Exemption is not automatic. An application must be filed with the Assessor between January 1 and April 1. Certain leased property, real and personal, may also qualify for exemption. Contact the Assessor’s office at 503-588-5144 for filing procedures.
