End the commuter tax on non-profit workers: New York must shield the charitable sector from a terribly unfair law

To levy a tax on commuter benefits given to employees, who are carrying out the organization’s mission every day, is unprecedented. For-profit businesses only pay taxes if they are profitable, and are not subject to a specific commuter tax, while cash-strapped nonprofits are forced to pay this tax even if they operate at a loss. In New York alone, this provision would force nonprofits to pay up to $364 million extra on commuter benefits.
