PETITIONER`S MOTION FOR THE TAX EXEMPTIONS.
TO THE ABOVE-ENTITLED COURT AND ALL INTERESTED PARTIES AND THEIR
ATTORNEYS OF RECORD HEREIN:
This motion is based on this notice, the attached Memorandum of points and Authorities, the
pleadings herein, and on such further oral and documentary evidence as may be presented or
judicially noticed at the hearing of this motion.
DECLARATION
The defendants are volunteers in a Neighborhood Empowerment Trust Association. The trust is
designed by directives to operate as a community financial system that is well established as a
contract with fiduciary reprehensibility to support our mission; Housing Preservation and
Development Free Skool N.F.P. Apprenticeship Training. Furthermore, subject 2 flat 5250s
Aberdeen Chicago 11, furthers our efforts to encourage and support the community to develop
cultural Training Workshops point, from what has become a culture of crime, gang control in our
streets that exposes our community to gun violence that has led to a cultural indifference that
exposes the community to mental pain that is associated with the cases and incidences of gun
violence on a day-to-day basis. The Food Not Bombs Free Skool N.F.P Ministry work will be
located in Illinois, Chicago. It is a Market Church ministry and will operate a Mobil Technician
Service owing to the adverse effect that the pandemic has had on it. The church applied for the
SBA Targeted EIDL Advance Application Number 3325606387.
The other church project is supporting a self-sustained Student Internship Core. This is because
the church believes that investing in children is investing in power. However, the church will
require the assistance of congressional, religious, and community representatives to address its

3
needs. This is especially regarding the SBA Grant EIDEL Disaster Loan Approval and the needs
of the community. The Student Internship Core will be designed to create jobs for students in
their chosen vocation and the students will work in teams. This will be part of developing models
within their chosen career skills.
The Two-by-Two Ministry of the church will also provide individual education designed
in cooperation with communication leaders, teachers, churches, police caps, and other non-
profits to coordinate ongoing Children Educational that is reflective of children’s capacity to
learn at an early age. The church also intends to protect the Children’s Rights for educational
standards that provide an equal learning opportunity to Integrated education that include 5
foreign languages.
Student Ministry designed to work with Student Interns that include and require
Community outreach that will support our repair shop , and other Student Purpose Economy
work related plans, requiring working collaboration’s with Religion, Business and Law
Enforcement to organize; costumer base that will support the student, this model helps the
Community across the board) using modern science and Economic principles to keep the
Educational Needs of Children current and provide Effective Mental, Emotional and Spiritual
Support.
Profits from the Church’s economic educational Ministry will be placed in God’s
Storehouse Covenants Fund that supports Students Internships, first to Mentor Children and the
families of Children that are on Track. The SBA grant and loan are earmarked to acquire needed
Equipment for our Automotive Purpose Economy Internships. The church will come alongside
the Community and demonstrate that Jesus is a mastermind marketer provided instructions that
are not against business, but against the Money Changers, and that using biblical principles to

4
demonstrate that Mentorships are well-established covenants for both Religious or Non-
Religious Content.
The Student CORE provide Students a Sustainable Community-based Economic Models
that support our Two By Two Tutoring, Mentoring, and Counselling for Children and the Family
of Children that are off Track and establish preventive education at all levels To counter the
effects of existing and expanding business policies that undermine Human Values that hurt
students, retirees and deny excess to immigrants, that built our country and contribute need
resources our mission is to bolster human right and counter-economic policies that undermine
human Value and Rights I have made a shortlist that include:
o Offshoring/ loss of productivity gains at every level that hurt.
o Automation and advanced AI/Robotics will continue to displace millions of entries and
high-level service, tech, and professional jobs that undercut wages, lower our purchasing
power, undermine our treasury and already weak social security system.
o Loss of Tax revenue from Jobs, Spending, and economic growth is passed on as
governments raise existing and imposes new regulatory fees.
o Organized Cartels: World wide networks will further thrive as Robotics displace us from
our work and other roles (Saudi Arabia has already granted citizenship to the first robot –
Sophia). Japan has a 10-year lead on China with one million robotic workers and robotic
revenue produces 70 billion in revenue. Meanwhile, China has 5G spy systems that ticket
jay walkers.
o Loss of Jobs and Jobs training, and Tax Shortfalls aids in establishing conditions for
organized crime activities, and causing their influence to flourish.

5
o International cartels. In addition to illegal smuggling of Drugs Guns and Drug making
operations, they register thousands of corporate shell companies that operate under
wholesale Distribution tax exemptions (this is the number one cause of tax revenue loss)
and provides perfect legal cover for money laundering that further exploits our
communities.
The Core provides Churches a process to organize community business, economic and
social development resources that include knowledge, Purchasing Power and Management skills
to develop a Localized Circular Economy that benefits students of all ages, minimize teacher
burn out, through the internship program that brings a large talent pool of children and provide
law enforcement a seat at the guidance table and administer programs that reward community
members
Localized Church Business partnership is an alternative Community financial system that
rewards achievement that rivals Sports and Entertainment Culture and establishes Church culture
working within IRS Rules to develop Covenant Funds as a special Purpose fund that protects
present and future rights such as intellectual property rights.

Our public interest community plan will provide a petition-based reasoning that will be evaluated
and refined as proposed legislation that is based on working business, economic and social
development model to ensure that our national state and local policy makers are not interfered
with while working for the public good.

MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES IN SUPPORT

Sales tax exemption can be very valuable to a nonprofit organization, especially in a city like
Chicago with a 9.25% tax.  In Illinois, many nonprofit organizations qualify for state and local
sales tax exemption.  Sales tax exemption is by no means a slam-dunk, however, simply because
an organization has an IRS determination letter in hand.  The following guidance is for 501(c)(3)
organizations operating in Illinois to qualify for, obtain, and retain state sales tax exemption.
Food Not Bombs Free SkoolFood Not Bombs Free Skool N.F.P Ministry is based in Illinois
hence the tax measures of the state will be applicable to it. Accordingly, the Property Tax Code
provides that property used exclusively for religious purposes will qualify for exemption as long
as it is not used with a view to profit (35 ILCS 200/15-40(a)). In this context, the term
“exclusively” refers to the primary purpose for which the property is used.

Service as a Non-Profit Organization which is under the provisions of the Public Charity Statues
170(b)(1)(A)(1)(I) and is exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal
Revenue Service.
This section of the Property Tax Code applies to property owned by religious institutions and
used in furtherance of the religious institutions’ functions or services, including churches,
religious schools, orphanages, convents, and, in applicable situations, housing facilities for
religious officials and their families (35 ILCS 200/15-40(b)). If the property used for religious
purposes is determined to be operating with a view to profit, that use destroys any eligibility for
property tax exemption. For example, if a property owner intends to earn a profit resulting from
its religious activities, or by leasing the property, then that property is not eligible for property
tax exemption.

7
From the preceding, the church qualifies to be exempted from paying tax. This is because
the church is a religious institution and will be used in furtherance of the religious institution’s
functions or services. It also qualifies because profits from the Church’s economic educational
Ministry will be placed in God’s Storehouse Covenants Fund that supports Students Internships,
first to Mentor Children and the families of Children that are on Track. The SBA grant and loan
are earmarked to acquire needed Equipment for our Automotive Purpose Economy Internships.
The church will come alongside the Community and demonstrate that Jesus is a mastermind
marketer provided instructions that are not against business, but against the Money Changers,
and that using biblical principles to demonstrate that Mentorships are well-established covenants
for both Religious or Non-Religious Content.
The public interest community plan will provide a petition-based reasoning that will be evaluated
and refined as proposed legislation that is based on working business, economic and social
development model to ensure that our national state and local policy makers are not interfered
with while working for the public good.
The church will also be careful not to be involved in profitable operations to avoid being
excluded from being eligible to be exempted from tax.When the church is involved in profitable
operations ,the organization will make that the profits are used to further accomplish the mission
of the church.
Further, having established that the church will be a non-profit institution, the church,
through an advocate will file an application through an administrative filing process. The
application process begins with filing an application with your local County Board of Review
containing all of the required materials. The application will then be reviewed by the Board of
Review and a recommendation is made to the IDOR as to whether the property should be granted

8
property tax exemption. The IDOR does not need to follow the Board of Review’s
recommendation and conducts its own analysis of the application.
If the application and accompanying documentation sufficiently establish the applicant
organization’s qualification for exemption, it should be approved. However, if the application is
denied by the IDOR, the church will proceed with an administrative appeal and, potentially, a
subsequent court appeal. Once a real estate tax exemption is successfully obtained, exempt
organizations must file annual affidavits with their local County Assessor’s offices by a specific
deadline in order for their exemptions to continue. The exempt ownership and use of the property
must remain unchanged.

CONCLUSION
In short, the defendants’ application is that the church is exempted from paying taxes
because it is a non-profit organization. This is because, the Property Tax Code provides that
property used exclusively for religious purposes will qualify for exemption as long as it is not
used with a view to profit (35 ILCS 200/15-40(a)). In this context, the term “exclusively” refers
to the primary purpose for which the property is used. IN this motion we have in detail explained
the financial aspect of the organization and the financial running of the place that makes it a
non-profit organization.
REASONS WHEREFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, Anthony Caridi respectfully requests
this Honorable Court to grant this Motion to grant tax exemptions for the church organization to
help in the effective running of the non-profit organization.
