15. It's a tax on "wages."

They've basically redefined some free perks as "wages" which are subject to a tax.

The employer can pick it up. Or it can pass it through.

And it's not just churches. That's the "I want to grab your attention and make you outraged by goring your sacred ox" blather. It's any non-profit. So the Houston Symphony will be hit by it; Rice University will be hit by it; the Menil Collection, an art museum, will be hit by it; the Houston Museum of Natural Science will be hit by it. So will the local United Methodist Church, messianic synagogue, conservative synagogue, and Islamic center.

I also have to assume that if the local doctor's offices that are for profit provide free parking in paid parking structures for their staff, they'd be hit by it. In other words, it doesn't sound like it's a non-profit-only thing.
