IRS Regulations for Churches
Listen: Interview with Ched Myers
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) grants non-profit status to churches, synagogues, mosques and other religious organizations.
These organizations are allowed to engage in political activities provided that they do so in a non-partisan manner.
Churches can invite candidates for office to address their congregation or sponsor a voter registration drive.
However, non-profit religious institutions cannot give financial or moral support to specific political candidates or recommend that the members of a congregation vote for a particular candidate or political party.
