Highlight

A district court's decision whether to order the taking of additional evidence under N.D.C.C. 28-34-01(3) is discretionary.
The basic concept of charity is to provide a gift to assist those in need.
Restricting the use of property for charitable purposes such as providing housing for the handicapped, the elderly, or persons with low incomes does not alone suffice to qualify for a charitable tax exemption.
