Tax concessions for charities: competitive neutrality, the tax base and “public goods” choice


The tax concessions and exemptions granted to charitable organisations are generally provided on the basis that these organisations provide goods and services with a broad public benefit. Part of the rationale for granting tax concessions is that charitable organisations have historically operated alongside the for-profit sector by meeting the demands of a different segment of the market. Traditionally, charitable organisations have not operated in direct competition with for-profit organisations that could not access any tax exemptions.
