Church using Pastor's Personal credit card for purchases

by William

Is it semipermeable according the IRS, law, etc.. for a pastor to be making purchases for the church with HIS personal credit card and the church then makes payments towards that credit card?

Any advise please provide documentation for me.

Thanks

Business reimbursements are usually ok as long as you have all documentation to support it and you follows IRS rules.
depending on what is being reimbursed there are different ways and amounts that are allowed.

All Require Proper Documentation.
the IRS pub 15 series is the best place to start...

I suggest calling the IRS Exempt Organization to check on the paying a personal credit card directly.. and posting their answer here so we can all see :0)
