Religious Organization. The IRS does not require religious organizations to apply for a 501(c)(3) certificate in order to qualify as a tax-exempt charitable organization. In such cases, the Department will issue a sales tax exemption certificate to a religious charitable entity, even in the absence of an 501(c)(3) certificate, if the organization has a charitable purpose and meets the conditions set forth below. In lieu of the 501(c)(3) certificate, a religious organization shall provide to the Department a copy of its IRS No Record of Exempt Organization letter and Department Form DR 0716, “Statement of Nonprofit Church, Synagogue, or Organization”.

“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).”
