State Supreme Court Restores Camp Marist Property Tax Exemption

The September 14 decision found that a Superior Court judge erred last year by ruling in favor of the Town of Effingham after the children’s camp sued it for denying its annual application to qualify for a charitable tax exemption. While the ruling focuses on a decision made by the town in 2015, the tax dispute between the camp and the town has deeper roots.
