The Board of Supervisors’ finance committee has recommended that three more Loudoun nonprofits be awarded property and real estate tax exemptions in 2017.
If approved by the full board, Loudoun Interfaith Relief, Loudoun Youth Soccer Association, and Tree of Life Ministries will all be exempt from county property taxes. If granted, the county would be giving up an anticipated $45,229 in revenues in 2016.
Loudoun Interfaith Relief is the county’s largest food pantry, collecting and distributing food to needy people and families in the county. If granted the tax exemption, it would be exempt from $2,387.93 in property and real estate taxes. Loudoun Interfaith Relief received $47,237 in grant funding in this year’s county budget, and reported $3,289,691 in contributions and grant funding in its 2014 federal tax return.
According to its application, Loudoun Soccer serves more than 15,000 players and 2,000 coaches. It would be exempt from $42,661.15 in property and real estate taxes, mostly real estate. It reported $42,772 in contributions and grants and $4,584,334 in program revenues in its 2014 federal tax return.
Tree of Life Ministries would be exempt from $180.03 in property taxes. Its 2014 federal tax return shows $705,050 in grants and contributions.
The tax exemptions would have to go to a public hearing, which has not yet been scheduled.
