1. Note Concerning Tax Deductible Contributions:
In the United States financial donations by an individual to churches and certain other organizations are tax-deductible to the extent that the aggregate of such contributions does not exceed 50 percent of the taxpayer’s contribution base (adjusted gross income) for the taxable year (26 USC 170).
Section 508(c) of the Internal Revenue Code provides that churches are not required to apply for recognition of Section 501(c)(3) status in order to be exempt from federal taxation or to receive tax deductible contributions. Churches are automatically exempt from Federal income tax, in accordance with the first amendment to the Constitution of the United States. “Congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” (U.S. Constitution, First Amendment). Contributions to churches are deductible by donors under 26 USC 170.
