Tax Exemption Information

Federal Tax Exemption for ANGA Churches and Ministries

Through our affiliation with The Apostolic Resource Center (ARC), qualifying ANGA churches and ministries can receive federal tax exemption by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Through participation in ARC’s group tax exemption, members can operate as a tax-deductible, non-profit organization at a fraction of the cost and time typically required for an entity to receive its tax-exempt determination from the IRS.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can any ANGA member participate?
Not all members will qualify for group tax exemption. One basic requirement is the need for the member to have been formed within the last 15 months. For more details and a complete list of the IRS requirements, please contact our office.

How can I apply?
Due to the additional requirements associated with group tax exemption, ANGA members must complete a separate application, which may be submitted along with a prospective member’s ANGA application or submitted separately by current ANGA members. Please contact our office to receive the group tax exemption application.

What fees are involved?
There is a non-refundable application fee for the group tax exemption application in addition to the application fee for prospective ANGA members. Additionally, a onetime, setup fee is due upon acceptance into the group tax exemption program. Lastly, inclusion in the program must be renewed by the member annually, subject to the requirements listed below.

Yes, to continue to participate in the program members must provide the following by July 31 of each year:

  1. Payment to cover the administrative fees associated with the program
