ALL churches fall under section 501(c)3 of the IRS code. The difference is whether you are a corporation set up like a business that has requested special permission to be considered a charity. CHURCHES DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER AND ARE AUTOMATICALLY TAX EXEMPT! The ONLY reason to be a corporation is for liability protection for the board of directors, to protect assets, and to give stronger assurances to the donors that you're "official." But if you do it that way - they OWN you. More at http://www.FellowshipOfTheMartyrs.com

The TRUTH about 501(c)3 Churches - IT'S PROBABLY NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS! Many people are asking very important questions about tax-exempt churches and what they can, or cannot, do in the way of political involvement. There is a boat load of misinformation out there concerning this topic. Some of the information going around is simply deceitful and blatantly untrue. I want to set the matter straight for those who desire to know the truth. You might wish to send this article to pastors, church leaders, and church members that may be under a different impression. -------------------------------- QUESTIONS:Can a pastor "be involved in politics?" If so - how involved? Can a church that is 501(c)3 be involved in the political process? Can a church member that belongs to a 501(c)3 church be involved in politics? Can a church support a candidate running for office? Can a church get involved in a "political issue" - such as a wet/dry election in the county where the church exists, or even in national political issues like abortion, gay marriage, etc? Can a preacher preach on political/biblical issues (homosexuality, evolution, Israel, ISIS, etc.) and even connect those issues with political figures and office holders? -------------------------------- ANSWERS: (legally documented and practically applied truth) A pastor (like any other church member) can advocate for, give money to, put yard signs up for, and speak out for a candidate all he wants. He does not give up right of free speech, or his basic rights as a voting citizen just because he is a pastor, or church member, of a 501(c)3 tax exempt church. But, (and this is the important distinction) the 501(c)3 church cannot use its pulpit or the church organization to endorse or to raise money for a singular/exclusive candidate. More on that will follow in this article. As a living example of these truths: I speak about politics, political personalities, candidates running for office, political issues, etc. - on my own radio programs, in national radio and TV interviews, and in print media articles ... all the time, and have done so for many years. It is perfectly legal to do so. You have seen many other pastors and 501(c)3 ministries do it all the time, if you think about it. A few that immediately come to mind (that you continually see on television and in the print media) are Pastor Robert Jeffress, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell Jr., etc. Additionally, I often give financial contributions to candidates, and I post yard signs on my personal property. I have even been known to display bumper stickers and magnetic signs on my personal vehicles. According to the tax code: As long as the church where I am the pastor, its ministries, its tax-exempt money, etc. are not used as, or merely disguised as, a "political action committee," then I am within my lawful rights to be fully politically engaged as an individual. I can even reveal that I am a pastor, and I can identify the church where I am the pastor - I just cannot say that my church endorses a singular candidate, nor can I blatantly lead the church to endorse a singular candidate by using its official services and money to make such a declaration. 501(c)3 churches can legally be involved in voter registration drives among their membership or community. They can even hold political forums in their church, as well as in their services, provided that all the candidates of the offices that are being highlighted are invited and given a chance to speak and to be recognized. In other words, one candidate cannot be officially "favored" over another candidate by the church while it is conducting the forum. A church can have "political information" areas designated on their property, and in their buildings, for the purpose of distributing voter guides, candidate literature, etc. - provided that every candidate has equal access to display their materials, and the voter guides fairly include the views of all the candidates. I have done all of these things over the years in the church where I am the pastor. *Carl Gallups August 9, 2016* VIEW FULL ARTICLE AT THIS LINK https://www.facebook.com/carlgallups2/posts/1114739315232189:0 GO TO THIS IRS WEBSITE FOR ALL THE DETAILS ...

Google the term "How to start a nonprofit" or "How to get tax-exempt 501(c)3 status" and you'll see many results with people expressing confusion, frustration and even anger over IRS approval delays which at their height not long ago, ran 18 months on average. The IRS responded by creating a faster, more streamlined path for smaller organizations (organizations with projected revenues below $50,000 per year in the first three tax years), which decreased the complexity and delay of the IRS 1023 application process. The problem? There are still a number of steps which must be performed properly in preparing to apply for Tax-Exempt status. Make a mistake in any of these and your application will be delayed or denied when it reaches the IRS Exempt Organizations department. For this and other reasons, many nonprofit founders choose to get assistance with the entire 501(c)3 process from the beginning, and focus instead on their world-changing mission. Yippiekiyay's 501(c)3 approval time, from "idea to IRS approval" ranges from less than 30 days (for lower-budget organizations whose applications go through without additional IRS interaction) to around 3-4 months (for higher budget orgs with more complex files). Faster approvals help the organization stay on track, keep board members and donors energized, and maintain critical momentum needed to push programs and your mission forward. Yippiekiyay is a one-stop platform to start your 501(c)3 nonprofit and keep you fundraising compliant.

Full session: http://hrock.tv/conferences/leadershift-2015/ . Lance Wallnau shares on how micro churches are a key to bringing revival to the 7 mountains of society.
Beware: 501(c)(3) Corp Status is a Bad Deal for a church just say NO! Here's why: You don't own your church, you only control it. The government owns it. The government owning churches tax exempt is in direct violation of the Separation of Church and State Law. That means your church is operating illegally! The government holds the power to shut you down for any reason they want and site "illegal formation" or "illegal operation" as their cause. This is irrefutable by you in a court of law and can also land you in prison for fraud if the government so desires to dispose of you! There are a few minor advantages of having a non-profit tax exempt status but mostly the bad more than out weigh the good. It's all in the fine print on IRS Publication 557 "Tax Exempt Status for Your Organization". You don't even need non-profit status anyway because that applies to your church only, not to your donors. Tithes, gifts and donations to non-profit tax exempt organizations can still be tax deductible on the giver's taxes as a charitable donation tax deduction. I am not giving legal advice here just telling you what I know so consult with a tax professional concerning your own unique situation in these matters before you sign your church away on the dotted line for 501c3 tax exempt status.
