Cities Turn To Non Profits For Revenue: Cash-strapped cities across the country are getting more aggressive about collecting money from nonprofits that are exempt from property taxes. So says a study released today by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. It’s a practice called PILOT, payment in lieu of taxes whereby Private universities, hospitals, museums and other non profits voluntarily pay a small percentage of what they would owe in property taxes to municipalities. We talk with the study’s authors Daphne A. Kenyon, Visiting fellow in the Lincoln Institute's Department of Valuation and Taxation and principal of D. A. Kenyon & Associates, Windham, New Hampshire; and Adam H. Langley, research analyst in the Lincoln Institute's Department of Valuation and Taxation and a master's student in economics at Boston University.
