There is a reasonable level of expectation for taxes to be paid. Property taxes are no exception. Schools and local governments are dependent upon property taxes. It’s particularly egregious when an organization that gets funding from taxpayers doesn’t pay its property taxes.
But, that is exactly what Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio has done. The taxpayer funded deadbeats owe $202,397.03 according to the Cuyahoga County Auditor’s website.
Those affected the most by these deadbeats are the children in the Bedford Schools. These children are a different type of Planned Parenthood statistic. The organization is stiffing their education.
As the Ohio legislature considers defunding Planned Parenthood at the state level, it’s important to look at how the organization is run. Either incompetence or intentional financial thievery seems to rule at Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio. Neither should be rewarded with our tax dollars.
Go fund yourself. And pay your taxes too.
We have learned from the Cuyahoga County Auditor’s office that PPNO just last month got non-profit status.
Guess what? Now the county cannot collect on their delinquent taxes. Outrageous.
