2. No, they don't - YOU do.

 

Churches are not taxed because they are non-profit entities. They have no shareholders/owners so they don't pay taxes.

The get 501(c)(3) /tax-exempt status which allows DONORS to DEDUCT DONATIONS. Some non-profits are 501(c)(4) which means they are non-profits that do engage in influencing politics. Donations to those orgs are not tax deductible.

So, if a church loses its tax-exempt status it is the DONORS not the church that gets taxed.
