More About the 508 Patron Program

508 Patrons provide vital financial support to The 508 Company so we can provide churches and religious organizations with ongoing education, compliance research and updates, State and Federal legislative and legal updates, monthly group training and support sessions, annual compliance verification, customizable and attorney-reviewed organizational document templates, customizable and accountant-reviewed financial document templates, and more.

According to Pew Research Center, Government restrictions on religion have increased globally between 2007 and 2017 in all four categories studied: favoritism of religious groups, general laws and policies restricting religious freedom, harassment of religious groups, and limits on religious activity. Furthermore, some of the biggest increases in religious restrictions over the past decade have occurred in Europe where their average score measuring government limits on religious activity has doubled, and its score in the government harassment of religious groups category has gone up by about 70%. And today, with pressures mounting here in the United States, we are determined to make sure Government restrictions on religion don’t increase.

This is why The 508 Company monitors State and Federal legislation on behalf of religious freedom. We’re grateful for God’s faithfulness to provide dedicated political leaders and organizations who have protected our religious freedoms since 1894 when churches first received official federal income tax exemption. The landmark 1969 overhaul to the tax code included significant legislation regarding charitable organizations, such as the filing requirements, of which, churches were exempt in Section 508(c)(1).

According to the IRS, the tax code has been amended or revised over 4,000 times from 2003 to 2013. It’s only by God’s grace churches still have many mandatory exceptions within the United States tax code. But the threat of losing some, or more, mandatory exceptions is as real as ever. As recently as 2021, the IRS denied tax-exempt status from a religious organization in Texas and stated, “Bible teachings” are “affiliated with the Republican party.” On December 8, 2022 Congress passed the Respect for Marriage Act which put the tax-exempt status of hundreds of religious organizations who believe in the Biblical definition of marriage at risk.

We must be proactive! Become a 508 Patron today.

“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.”

The New York Times, “Fact-Checking the Misleading Claim About 87,000 Tax Agents”, November 6, 2022

“…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).”
