|Property Tax Exemption|
|Rhode Island law exempts from taxation the property of a hospital “for the sick or disabled.”
Real and personal property held by or for a hospital for the sick and disabled and used exclusively for that purpose is exempt. R.I. Gen. Laws §44-3-3(12); Lifespan Corporation v. City of Providence, 776 A.2d 1061 (R.I. 2001). State law also exempts intangible personal property owned by, or held in trust for, a charitable organization if the principal or income is used or appropriated for charitable purposes. R.I. Gen. Laws §44-3-3(7).
