Church Incorporation

by Kathy Butler
(Corning, Arkansas, USA)

I do not know if our church is incorporated or not.


We affiliate in fellowship with an organization that is now wanting us to send them our articles of incorporation and bylaws. We have our bylaws.

What does it mean to be incorporated and are there any tax forms we have to file throughout the year being incorporated?

We give our pastor who does not get a salary a 1099-MISC each year and file the 1096 with the IRS but other than that we don't file any IRS forms.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks
