Position Paper: Payments in Lieu of Taxes
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is opposed to proposals by state and local governments to require payments in lieu of taxes (often referred to as P.I.L.O.T.) by tax-exempt charitable organizations described in section 501(c)(3) of the federal Internal Revenue Code.
The attached position paper was developed by the AFP Government Relations Committee and approved by the board of directors in 1997. At that time, AFP was still the National Society of Fund Raising Executives (NSFRE).
