Reclassification (First Payment)

In essence, by Reclassifying, you will keep all of your First Amendment religious rights, continue to operate according to your Biblical faith, protect the privacy of your donors, and maintain all of the IRS Tax Code Exceptions for churches. 
Churches and Religious Organizations are Not Created Equal

“Because special tax rules apply to churches, it’s important to distinguish churches from other religious organizations. Therefore, when the IRS uses the term “religious organizations,” it isn’t referring to churches or integrated auxiliaries of churches.” – Internal Revenue ServicePublication 1828

Most religious nonprofit organizations have applied to the IRS for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, thinking this was the only option. However, a better way has been included in the Form 1023 Application for Recognition of Exemption. Many religious organizations have discovered the many benefits. Even well-known religious organizations reclassifying as “churches” or “conventions or associations of churches” has been a trend for decades.

The Salvation Army was founded in London in 1865, had its first US branch in 1880, had been tax-exempt in the US since 1933, and was reclassified as a “convention of churches” in 1955 after 75 years of US operation. The Navigators were reclassified as a church in 2005 after 72 years. Focus on the Family was reclassified as a church in 2016 after operating for almost 40 years. Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was reclassified as an “association of churches” in 2015 after 66 years. Family Research Council was reclassified as an “association of churches” in 2020 after 37 years.

Many other popular religious organizations have also reclassified with approval from the IRS, including Ethnos360, Voice of the Martyrs, Campus Crusaders, Precept Ministries, World Vision, Liberty Counsel, and American Family Association.

The reasons for reclassification among these dozens of popular religious organizations vary but these three reasons are a common thread:

  • They want to operate according to their biblical faith as an organization.
  • They want exemptions in the federal tax code that apply only to churches or associations of churches such as mandatory exemption from yearly Form 990 tax-return filing and exemptions from paying into public insurance programs that pay for abortion, contraception, or other medical services to which the organization is conscientiously opposed.
  • They want to protect the confidentiality of their donors since 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations are required to disclose to the IRS the names and addresses of donors giving over a certain amount in the year.

“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).”
