If our church violates our bylaws does it effect our satus

This answer was rated:

If our church violates our bylaws does it effect our satus as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3), Internal Revenue Code of 1986?

MyVirtualCPA :

Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

MyVirtualCPA :

What did the church do to violate their bylaws

Customer:

took a vote that was against what our bylaws said we were to do

MyVirtualCPA :

No, that would not invalidate your 501(c)(3) status

MyVirtualCPA :

Only if your violation also violated federal tax regulations would it invalidate your designation

MyVirtualCPA :

So, you should be good to go

MyVirtualCPA :

Do you need anything additional?

Customer:

no
