This Week's LessonWeek of July 14
This week we turn our attention to Church Credit Cards. Start by completing the following quiz. Then review the Executive Summary for the key points on this topic, or read the Weekly Lesson for a complete discussion of this topic.
A church issues Pastor Bob a credit card with a $3,000 limit. Pastor Bob frequently uses the card to pay for gas, church-related meals, books, and supplies. The credit card company sends monthly invoices to the church, which are paid promptly. Pastor Bob is not required to substantiate the business nature of any expense because of a church policy restricting the use of the credit card to business-related expenses. Should the church report any of the credit card expenses that it pays as taxable income to Pastor Bob?
