Should churches pay tax?
Churches pursue both private and public goals as do all non-profits. Though the church's non-profit mission is sometimes not viewed by others as valid, nonetheless the mission is the final purpose of the organization and not profit.
Megachurches, particularly those preaching
, are solely focused on generating personal wealth, often to the detriment of the congregation and benefit of the preacher. Only the charitable service arms should be tax exempt.
