Board of directors = an odd number of officers is required by law to vote for approval in the use and distribution of all moneys accrued thru donations; this voting board is called a quorum The board of directors is often comprised of the chapter officers, however to minimize liability, churches often appoint a board of deacons.� The members of the Deacon Board are typically elected by vote; if required by state law church members hold an informal election to affirm the chosen candidates.� This is a legal maneuver for the church records in the event of an audit by the Internal Revenue Service, or in the event of a state audit.� In addition to organizing as a non-profit corporation by filing for Federal tax-exempt status with the IRS, churches are usually required by individual state governments to file separately as non-profit organizations.� The United States Constitution guarantees the right to freedom from taxation of church by the state; just the same, watchdog groups make certain churches are under constant scrutiny.� I will not digress by wasting valuable time explaining constitutional law and its relation to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.� There are pros and cons on both sides of the argument and I do not care one bit to jump into this arena.� I will say however that I personally find there is a conflict between the scriptures and present day church government and I do not personally advocate tax-exemption for the church.� I�m sure I�ll get some dirt clods tossed my way on this one, but this means less to me than doing what I believe is right.
