You Must Become a Legal 501(c)(3) Now
As I travel across the nation teaching Church and Clergy Tax Seminars, I am continually amazed at Pastors, Church Leaders, and Bookkeepers who feel as if they are exempt from obtaining formal 501(c)(3) approval from the Internal Revenue Service. Some of these Pastors and Leaders feel as if it is unnecessary because they are under a denominational umbrella. Others feel it is unnecessary simply because they are a Church and they mistakenly think Churches are exempt from the requirements. Both of those objections are flawed and today I will answer both.
