  •  Religious organizations are corporations (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. To be eligible for tax deductible contributions you must be a corporation registered under this specific code with the IRS. However, I thought your question was not "if" religious organizations in the US are corporations, but rather "when" the practice either started or required. My guess is that johnny with his access to the Lexus/Nexus data base and tax background will come up with a definitive answer on the "when" question. The "if" question is easy to answer, if you want your supporters to be able to have their contributions be deductible for income tax purposes you must be a corporation under 501(c) (3).
