2018 Church Organization Tax ID / SS-4 Form

A church organization is a branch of a church, including a men's or women's group, a religious school, a mission society, or a youth group.

For tax purposes, a "church" refers to any organization claiming to be a church or any convention or association of churches. The word "church" includes temples, mosques, and other houses of worship. To be considered a church for tax purposes, a group must be part of an organized religion, must have a mission statement, and must be formally organized as a distinct legal entity. Certain characteristics are generally attributed to churches. They include:

  • A distinct legal existence and religious history
  • A recognized creed, form of worship, and literature of its own
  • A definite and distinct ecclesiastical government including a formal code of doctrine and discipline
  • An organization of ordained ministers, selected after completing prescribed courses of study
  • Established places of worship with regular congregations, religious services, and/or religious instruction for members
