According to an article recently written by Frank Sommerville and published by Church Law and Tax, the IRS has begun initiating church exams to test for compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Though the total number of audits promised is likely to only affect a small percentage of churches, the news should prompt all church leaders to double-check whether their organization is compliant with the regulations.
The IRS has indicated that examination notices are currently going out and that they expect to continue selecting churches and send notices through the rest of this year. A free copy of Mr. Sommerville’s article is currently available and can be accessed by clicking HERE.
