Boston To Ask Non-profits For More: Boston officials are unveiling what they consider to be a fairer formula to calculate how much the city's nonprofits pay in lieu of property taxes. The 128-page report ties payments in lieu of taxes to property values and quantifies scholarships, volunteer work, and other value that colleges, hospitals and museums bring to Boston. Mayor Tom Menino says it's only fair that the institutions help pay for city services, including police and fire coverage, that they take advantage of. Some nonprofits pay millions of dollars annually, while some pay nothing. Many are resistant to change. Richard Doherty, who is the president of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts, says he is pleased that the report acknowledges the tremendous contributions that schools and hospitals already bring to the city – but he has concerns about the strict formulaic structure that’s being proposed.
