Constitutional Revision

The text of the most recent (and possibly final) addition follows;

Article 43

(1) No Catholic priest, nun, monk, or other religious person shall be liable for tax on their income from ecclesial sources.

(2) No Catholic church, shrine, basilica, cathedral, rectory, convent, monastery, or other building used for religious services or to house religious members shall be subject to a property tax. This will include such ancillary buildings as are needed for the proper function of the main building (for example; tool sheds, administrative office buildings, and parish halls) and the grounds on which they are kept.

(3) Charitable contributions to Catholic institutions are not subject to tax. This includes income derived from fund-raising commercial activities as long as the net profit is given to the Catholic institution.
