City of La Crosse pays $141,000 in legal fees for battle with Guadalupe Shrine taxes

About $141,000 to contest various efforts to claim tax-exempt status. Representatives of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, for example, came back to the city in 2011 to have its restaurant and gift shop added as tax-exempt property, even though in 2000 then Bishop Raymond Burke wrote “It is the intention of the shrine corporation to pay property taxes as the law requires” when the city agreed to the La Crosse Diocese’s request to annex the shrine site so it could receive water and sewer.

  1. Hey, if they qualify for tax-exempt, then not paying property taxes IS paying "as the law requires"!!!!
