The following has been taken from Tags: http://hushmoney.org/501c3-facts.htm
I have spoken about this, but thought you should see it straight from the IRS. Anyone who turned their church into a corporation knew about this and what 501c3 would do to them.
Churches Need Not Apply
In order to be considered for tax-exempt status by the IRS an organization must fill out and submit IRS Form 1023 and 1024. However, note what the IRS says regarding churches and church ministries, in Publication 557:
According to IRS Code ? 508(c)(1)(A):Special rules with respect to section 501(c)(3) organizations.
This is referred to as the "mandatory exception" rule. Thus, we see from the IRS? own publications, and the tax code, that it is completely unnecessary for any church to apply for tax-exempt status. In the IRS? own words a church ?is automatically tax-exempt.?
Churches Are ?Automatically Tax-Deductible
And what about tax-deductibility? Doesn?t a church still need to become a 501c3 so that contributions to it can be taken as a tax deduction? The answer is no! According to IRS Publication 526:
Churches Have a Mandatory Exception To Filing Tax Returns
Not only is it completely unnecessary for any church to seek 501c3 status, to do so becomes a grant of jurisdiction to the IRS by any church that obtains that State favor. In the words of Steve Nestor, IRS Sr. Revenue Officer (ret.):
from the Forward of In Caesar's Grip, by Peter Kershaw
I hope this opens a few eyes to the truth, and to what the major denominations are doing to them, and everything they thought they were giving for Christ's work here on earth.
