Greenpeace in New Zealand have just lost their court appeal to retain their charitable tax status. It seems that legally they’re now viewed as a political lobby group . . .
In a sane country, there would be a lot of this happening. In fact, I’d be all for banning “non-profit, tax-exempt” status entirely. It’s too easily abused.
On the other hand, the idea of taxing organizations in the first place is pretty corrupt–it’s by definition double (at least) taxation.
