I was teaching a Church Management and Tax Conference in West Virginia. One of the Pastors in attendance came to me during the lunch break to inform me of the mess he and his Church was in because of bad advice they had received.
As I listened to this Pastor, my heart ached for him because he had called the IRS for the advice, but when he was audited, the advice given him was erroneous. What further irritated him was that the IRS would not accept responsibility for their advice. He then informed me that he was thinking of getting an attorney to sue them, only to be heart-broken when I informed him that case law protected the IRS from civil suit in these matters.
