"Freewill " offering for performing quartet
Our church is planning on allowing a quartet that performs sacred music to hold a concert at the church.
The quartet wants to collect a freewill offering. They are not a tax-exempt entity.
How do we handle this?
Allow the offering and write a check for the amount and 1099 them? Does the fact they are not tax exempt pose a problem?
I assume this would not be a tax deductible donation to the donors? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
