Re: “Tale of Two Stations

Non-profits drain our communities more than just from the federal dollars they receive - they also receive extra-ordinary financial benefits by not paying a corporate income tax and in most communities - no property tax - and often no sales tax...yet they can be a huge consumer of public resources. Just think of what communities could do with the revenue if all of the non-profits who hold millions and billions of assets paid taxes. Spokane county could balance it´s budget through the added property tax revenue. They have the option to do so. There is no federal law that says they have to give non-profits a free ride.
Non profits are the largest sector of business growth. Wealthy individuals know that they can avoid capital gains taxes by placing stock assets into a foundation or donating them and still retain the power of how the money is spent as through a donor advised fund or securing a place on the board of directors or setting up their own foundation and paying friends or relatives a salary for managing it.
Not all do-gooders are forming non-profits to "do good". Or perhaps the question is - good for who? In the case of KYRS one might suspect that the majority of all funding (your donations and tax dollars) goes directly to benefit Mr. Flores as all but one other person at the station is a volunteer. It´s a great way to be self employed.
If the station is getting federal funding is it not illegal for them to discriminate based on sex, race, religious beliefs? Didn´t the Inlander miss the major points of why Ms Johnson quit? KYRS is not a community radio station - it is Mr. Flores - and it is unclear as to whether their board of directors are failing to perform the duties assigned to them under the Washington code of conduct.
