Church Employee Homes Deemed Taxable

The big Baptist church in Anchorage is going to have to pay some property taxes. The Municipal Tax Assessor says the homes of church employees are taxable because the employees have an ownership interest in them. Assessor Marty McGee says there is no indication that the Anchorage Baptist Temple intended to deceive city officials when it declared that it was the owner of the homes of Reverend Allen Prevo and Reverend Tom Cobaugh.
