  •  No new exemptions are needed. (0+ / 0-)

    There is already a law covering employer-provided room and board. It is purely secular and does not distinguish between for-profit and non-profit entities. It applies to all employer-provided room and board, provided that living in said housing (generally on-site or very nearby) is a condition of employment.

    Right now today, I live in an apartment complex where 2  maintenance workers are provided with apartments. A long-time friend pays no tax on his free housing at the boarding school where he teaches. At least one non-profit in my area employs resident managers to increase security or decrease resident-staff ratios in their supportive housing and group homes.

    The only change needed is for houses of worship to fall under the same statute as any other entity.
