Pass Through Gift
by Elwood Style
(Hendersonville, NC. USA)
Under the de minimus rule is it permissible for the church Treasurer to issue a donors receipt for tax purposes?
In this case the donor issued his personal check to the church asking that these funds be given as a love gift to the Pastor through the church checking account. Would it be permissable for the treasurer of the church to issue a donation form to the donor to be used as a tax deduction? The amount of the love gift is $2,500.00.
