NGO at risk of paying enormous tax on funds raised for toddler's treatment

Ljubljana, 4 October - The Slovenian association which has raised EUR 3.8 million for treatment of a 19-month-old Slovenian boy in the US and the recipients of the funds are at risk of having to pay a combined EUR 1.9 million in income tax because the association is not registered as a charity, several media outlets report. Efforts to avoid paying the tax are under way.
