508 Compliance Test™

Ready to find out if your 508 is (or will be) compliant?

Operating a noncompliant 508 carries potentially serious consequences, which is why we decided to start The 508 Company. We want every 508 to be confident and ready if the IRS ever comes knocking for information or it becomes necessary to defend your organization’s tax-exempt status in court. And considering our nation’s current political climate, this unfortunately may happen sooner rather than later—hence the importance of being prepared!

About this Test
The 508 Company has built the following 508 Compliance Test™ to help determine if your organization should be categorized as a tax-exempt church and compliant as a 508. This test is based on the following criteria:
  1. The IRS’s 14-point church test which has been used by the IRS since at least 1977.
  2. The 6 basic rules for tax-exempt organizations.
  3. Multiple court cases from the 1970s to 2024.

“The I.R.S. examined 1.4 million individual income tax returns in 2010, about 1 percent of the total number filed. In 2018, the latest year with available data when Republicans started making these claims, audits decreased to 370,000, or about 0.2 percent… The budget office estimated increasing I.R.S. funding would return enforcement to its 2010 levels. Doing so would result in about 1.2 million more audits; of those, 583,000 would target people making less than $75,000.”

“…For example, you educate believers on national issues that are central to their belief in the Bible as the inerrant Word of God. Specifically, you educate Christians on what the bible says in areas where they can be instrumental including the areas of sanctity of life, the definition of marriage, biblical justice, freedom of speech, defense, and borders and immigration, U.S. and Israel relations. The bible teachings are typically affiliated with the Republican party and candidates. This disqualifies you from exemption under IRC Section 501(c)(3).”
