Milwaukee parishes work diligently to reduce or eliminate unnecessary operating expenses so funds can be appropriately dedicated to further the Archdiocese’s mission. A frequent hurdle parishes face is overcoming an unanticipated property or sales tax expense (e.g., of space leased to third parties) despite the church’s general tax-exempt nature. In conjunction with experienced state and local tax attorneys at Husch Blackwell, the Milwaukee Archdiocese invites you to a webinar that will provide guidance on how parishes throughout Wisconsin may avoid state and local tax traps.
