Looking to Incorporate a Church?
Firstly, understand that pursuant to 26 USC § 508(c)(1)(a) that you were NEVER lawfully required to incorporate a Church nor file any documents with any Government agency seeking ‘Official Recognition’ of your Tax Exempt Status.
My fellow Christians, It would be DISASTROUS for you to physically incorporate ANY Church, because ANY incorporated Church here in the United States would be considered a ‘Creature of Statute’ otherwise known as a “Creature of The State” and would then fall under the category of 26 USC § 501(c)(3) and thereby have it’s tax exempt status heavily scrutinized by the Federal Government and the IRS.
Those churches that have incorporated themselves, have voluntarily suspended their God given Constitutional rights of Tax Exemption from Federal Income Tax and to receive Tax Deductible Contributions for instead, the Treasury Departments “Conditional Privilege” of being considered Tax Exempt. Don’t believe me? Take a look here at Tax Exempt Status of a Corporation Sole. By never either incorporating your Church nor filing out the IRS Form 1023, your Church is EXEMPT from even having to FILE Federal Informational Tax Returns CLICK HERE FOR PROOF! Also, here at the IRS’s own site which states that if a Church fills out a form 1023, they are now contractually obligated to file their Federal Income Taxes once every three years or they automatically lose their Tax Exempt status! Folks, if you DO NOT incorporate your Church nor fill out the IRS form 1023 and opt instead to form a Corporation Sole, the differences are staggering:
