  • Financial compensation for the non-restored properties of religious communities

A debate has been pending for long in the Czech Republic, and should be decided by the Constitutional Court in the coming months. It concerns the taxation of financial compensation for the non-restored property of religious communities.
Several constitutional claims have been issued by groups of Senators and Deputies of Czech Parliament against the Act on taxation of financial compensation for the non-restored property of religious communities of 23 April 2019. The taxation concerns the financial compensation provided by the state to religious communities, according to the Act on Property Settlement No. 428/2012.
On 24 April 2019, the Czech Bishops Conference, the Ecumenical Council of Churches, and the Federation of Jewish Communities, issued a joint statement against this Act on taxation (See Church Law Review, 2019, 76-3, p. 105-106).
