The landlord agency that oversees Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC) properties is asking to have its tax-exempt status restored.
The Greater Erie Economic Development Corporation, or GEEDC, owns two GECAC buildings, most notably the agency’s headquarters at 9th and Peach streets. That group lost its tax-exempt status in a ruling on April 9th.
The question is whether the landlord agency meets enough of the charitable requirements to be considered tax-exempt by itself or if it should be taxed like any other landlord.
A hearing about the ongoing dispute is expected later this summer.
