A church in San Rafael, California, is suing the city for charging thousands of dollars through a special property tax from which religious facilities are supposed to be exempt.

The action was brought in Superior Court for Marin County by the Pacific Justice Institute on behalf of Valley Baptist Church.

This could be an entertaining site. Not everyone thinks churches should be taxed exempt. Of course I think all church denominations do.
ProCon.org wrote:
Proponents argue that a tax exemption keeps government out of church finances and upholds the separation of church and state. They say that churches deserve a tax break because they provide crucial social services, and that 200 years of church tax exemptions have not turned America into a theocracy.
