Harvard Law School's Special Status

Harvard Law School dormitory North Hall 1651 Mass Avenue in Cambridge, MA at Wendell Street displays campaign signs for Henrietta Davis a candidate for Cambridge City Council. As a tax exempt non profit corporation under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Harvard pays no property taxes. Harvard also has a tax exemption from the MA Department of Revenue and like US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner an exemption from the US Internal Revenue Service. Under relaxed rectitude of the Obama administration Harvard ignores state and US prohibitions of using tax exempt property for political purposes. Harvard enjoys special status as the degree granting institution for the President of the United States. These images were captured on Wednesday October 21, 2009 at about 6:00 PM. Sometime before 9:30 PM on Thursday October 22, 2009 the signs were removed.
