880.0000 WELFARE EXEMPTION
(a) IN GENERAL
880.0281 Statement of Irrevocable Dedication. The purpose behind Revenue and Taxation Code section 214.01 was to substitute a specific statement of irrevocable dedication requirement for the rather subjective test of "construing the articles of incorporation as a whole to imply dedication" of a corporation's property. Thus, the Board and Board staff have from its enactment in 1966 construed "only if a statement of irrevocable dedication to only these purposes is found in the articles of incorporation of the corporation" as set forth in section 214.01 literally, with one exception. Absent such a statement, all the requirements for exemption are not met, and no exemption will be granted. C 1/22/1997.
