COVINGTON, LA (WWL-TV) - Some non-profits are scratching their heads over how to handle Gov. Bobby Jindal's new tax proposal.
WWL in New Orleans reports Habitat for Humanity, which builds houses for low-income people, said donations and tax exemptions help buy materials, while volunteers and no sales tax on sub-contractors' services help put the properties together on a tight budget.
And, losing those tax exemptions and having to pay new sales taxes, as part of the governor's plan to eliminate state income taxes, will add $6,000 to every house built, putting them in a tough spot.
Lawmakers head into session beginning next Monday.
