Anyone got any more info they can share, or comments to add on this question:
Are JW assemblies and conventions hit with a STEALTH TAX?
Why do I ask? Well, please take a look at these leaked docs...
S-330-E_Assembly-Guidelines - https://1drv.ms/b/s!AmCrvJcXI6M6gXlPIQOFWa6Ho52l
Appendix B (p.48)
MATTERS TO BE CARED FOR AFTER THE ASSEMBLY
Determine the new target balance for the circuit’s account.—See Instructions for Circuit Accounting (S-331).
S-331E_Instructions-for-circuit-accounting - https://1drv.ms/b/s!AmCrvJcXI6M6gXpkmKkhD-paBgV3
Target Balance (p.8, par.8)
Expenses that will be incurred during the next assembly, such as a per-publisher contribution that is made for the use of an Assembly Hall, should not be included in the target balance.
Per-publisher contribution should not be included? Why?
Normal Operating Expenditures (p.1, par.7)
Normal operating expenditures include per-publisher contributions for use of an Assembly Hall
Are these directions now stating that a "per-publisher contribution" (determined and enforced by the branch) - aka "head tax" - should be hidden away in the accounts and filed simply as "normal operating expenses"? (Never announced or published) What would be the reaction of the average publisher if they found out that the reason for the high "expenses" announced at the assembly or convention was because their organization taxes everyone who attends? Would they begin to think that this was an organization more interested in money than mercy?
