GOP lawmakers question motives of IRS in ruling that could jeopardize tax-exempt status of churches


(Worthy News) – Several Republicans in the U.S. House and sent a letter to the IRS Friday demanding the agency correct a ruling they say could have major implications for churches and -based organizations in the U.S.

Fifteen members signed the letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig about a group in called Christians Engaged. The group released a letter from the IRS stating that the federal agency denied the group 501(c)(3) status, saying “ teachings are typically affiliated with the [] party and candidates.”

“These issues have always been at the core of Christian belief and classifying them as inherently political is patently absurd,” the Republican letter reads. “If the IRS applied this interpretation broadly, it would jeopardize the tax-exempt status of thousands of Christian churches around the country.” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
