How much profit can a not-for-profit hospital make? A defense of the property tax exemption

Journal of Health Care Finance 25(4): 59-66

This article describes how St. Luke's successfully defended its tax exemption in an appeal to the Idaho Board of Tax Appeals and how proposed legislation would reduce uncertainty about taxation of not-for-profit hospitals in Idaho.
