Korea To Tax Donations To Religious Groups

Korea is to impose income tax on religious clergy including priests and monks from 2018.

The State Cabinet of South Korea has approved a decree that will see religious leaders begin to pay taxes on donations starting from next year.

The revision to the Income Tax Law was originally passed in 2015 but was eventually shelved for two years due to opposition from religious groups.
