Hello,
I have a daycare center and lease a couple rooms inside a jewish synagogue. I keep receiving an annual bill of $100 per year for a fire inspection even though I don't own the building and the temple has already passed their yearly inspection.I also am charged a sign tax but my sign is on the temples property. My question is I don't think I should have to pay the fire inspection tax because it's not my building and the temple already passed their inspection for the entire building which they would be tax exempt because they are a religious institution and wouldn't my sign be exempt also?
No you are a private business and you do not gain the benefit of the tax exempt status merely because you rent space from a tax exempt entity. You do not get tax exempt status, even if your sign is on their building. The only way you could get the benefit of their tax exempt status is if they owned your business and you managed it for them.

Thank you for your answer ,and that answers about the sign but what about being charged for the fire inspection when the temple has already been inspected and passed. I have no control over the building and the temple has complete ownership and control.
If they are considering you a separate business they can charge you for the inspection of the rooms that you rent from them separately from the building.
