How Much For Room and Broad?

From The Columbus Dispatch:

A group of Columbus pastors is asking the Internal Revenue Service to investigate whether certain members of Congress owe taxes and penalties on cut-rate rent from a Washington boarding house that has a tax exemption as a church.

If the members did pay below-market rental rates to the C Street Center and did not report it as income, “then the members may have significant unreported income-tax liabilities,” the pastors say in a complaint filed yesterday with the IRS.

“We’re saying to the IRS that if something of benefit is being paid to members of Congress under the cover of a church, then that should be reported and taxed,” said the Rev. Al Debelak, senior minister at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Columbus.
