Church Tax Exemption 508c1a Religious Trust

Easiest Steps to File As a Nonprofit Tax-Exempt Christian Outreach – Church Tax Exemption 508c1a Religious Trust

Matthew 5:15 says, No one lights a lamp, then sets it under a basket. Rather, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.

I want to share with you briefly the worth of forming your religious organization as a church, a few examples of IRS approved churches, and also the ideal way to start a church.

Why is it that you need church status for your ministry?

The value of your church in contrast to some other nonprofit is better rights, and less constraints.

First, churches don’t file income tax returns. All other nonprofits do.

Second, churches don’t have to provide records of receipts, disbursements, nor do they must provide testimony under oath, of these statements such as the rest of the nonprofits do.

Third, churches have special audit protections, where each of other nonprofits don’t.

In case you’re wondering if your organization may qualify, here’s a few examples of
IRS approved churches and church ministries:

The Salvation Army. Since 1958, classified as a church and association of churches, their primary income comes from thrift sales and contributions.

Young Life, a non-denominational church which focuses on youth and meet at recreation places.

The Billy Graham evangelical Association, one of the most significant evangelism ministries in America approved for association of churches in 2016. After 66 years of operation as a nonprofit they were audited by the IRS and subsequently changed the organization to church status.

Focus on The Family, a ministry that offers advice and counseling on marriage,
parenting and other subjects through radio, books and social media.

The law firm, Liberty Counsel, an integrated auxiliary of Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Besides the various types of churches, there are different ways to organize a church.
There is not any statute anywhere that says a church is required to be a 501c3.

A church could be organized as a 501c3, a 501c4, a 501d, a for-profit corporation or a 508c1a.

How your church is organized is vital to what it can and can’t do.

The best way to form your church is a 508c1a since it does not wave rights and also have speech restrictions, when compared with all other nonprofits.

We specialize in 508c1a formation and registration. As a lampstand holds a candle to be a light to everyone, a 508c1a holds your ministry to be a light to everybody on earth.
