IRS Webinar for Churches and Religious Organizations

On Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 2:00 pm Eastern Time, Senior Tax Law Specialist Virginia Richardson of the Internal Revenue Service will lead an internet-based webinar on tax issues facing churches and religious organizations. This webinar is free and all church treasurers are encouraged to watch this presentation and hear what the Internal Revenue Service has to say about vital tax issues facing the church today.

It is anticipated that at least the following topics will be addressed:

  • When it comes to taxes, what is a “church?”
  • What is a “religious organization?”
  • How do you apply for tax exempt status? Or do you need to?
  • Special rules for compensation of ministers
  • Recordkeeping and filing
  • Rules limiting an IRS audit of a church
  • And much more

To register for the FREE webinar, go to the IRS web site by clicking here. Register for the program where it says “Sign Up Now.” You only need to input your first and last name, your company/church name, and your e-mail address. You do NOT have to enter a PTIN number.

So register today. It should be interesting to hear what the IRS has to say about issues impacting our churches.

NOTE: This webinar is scheduled during the Church of God General Assembly. However, I hope that you will find time to participate anyway due to the critical subject matter.
