Maine church’s tax dilemma may lead to new law | Alliance Defending Freedom
Lawsuit prompts town to issue tax exemption,

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed suit against the town of Rockland on behalf of Aldersgate United Methodist Church last year. After a cumbersome resolution process, the lawsuit resulted in a property tax exemption for the church’s parking lot and parsonage Thursday.
