Since it is not deemed that part of the real estate acquired by an agricultural cooperative is used for its proper purpose, disposition imposing and assessing aggregate land tax, etc. is reasonable.

2. Purpose and reason of the request.
The claimant is seeking correction of the disposition of this case and the reasons for such correction:
The claimant asserts that the remainder (2,954.57 square meters) of the building at issue, excluding the leased part (201.7 square meters), among the buildings at issue, is subject to tax exemption, such as aggregate land tax, etc., because a wedding hall, bath bath, and swimming pool is installed so that members and associate members can use it, and the usage fees are collected less than the general business operators. This constitutes the establishment and operation of common facilities necessary for the business or livelihood of members as stipulated in Article 58 (5) of the Agricultural Cooperatives Act.
3. Judgment of the Republic of Korea
A dispute over a request for re-determination is whether a part of the real estate acquired by an agricultural cooperative can be considered as being used directly for its unique duties if it is used as a wedding hall, bath, or swimming pool.
First of all, Article 290 (3) 1 of the Local Tax Act provides that real estate used directly by an agricultural cooperative established under the Agricultural Cooperatives Act for its unique duties as of the tax base date shall be exempted from the property tax and aggregate land tax. Article 1 of the Agricultural Cooperatives Act provides that the purpose of the association is to promote the balanced development of the national economy by promoting the promotion of agricultural productivity and the enhancement of the social and economic status of farmers through the voluntary cooperative organization of farmers. Article 5 (2) of the same Act provides that the association shall not engage in profit-making or speculation. Article 58 (1) 5 and 5-4 of the same Act provides that the association can carry out the installation of joint-use facilities and the installation and management of welfare facilities necessary for the business or life of its members in order to achieve its purpose.
Then, in light of the purport of this case, the claimant's facilities cannot be deemed to be used for the claimant's own proper purpose, and the user fees are similar to those of the non-members. There is no particular difference between the union members and non-members. As to the wedding hall operated by the agricultural cooperative, the Supreme Court prohibits "for the purpose of pursuing a profit-making business of the union for its members or non-members, the operation of the cooperative's own profit-making business regardless of the union members is in violation of the above laws and regulations and it cannot be deemed as the operation of the cooperative's own business for its own purpose" (97Nu7095 of April 28, 1998). The claimant's facilities cannot be deemed to be used for the claimant's own proper purpose, and it cannot be extended to the real estate tax subject to exemption from taxation, such as the aggregate land tax, etc. for the business for the economic profit of the union itself. Thus, the disposition of the disposition of the aggregate land tax is not erroneous.
Therefore, since the claimant's assertion is recognized as groundless, it is decided as ordered in accordance with Article 77 (1) of the Local Tax Act.
