Charitable Giving

Church-owned vehicles
Many churches are acquiring an automobile for their pastors’ church-related travel. Here’s one reason why. If a church owns or leases a car and the board adopts a resolution restricting use of the car to church-related activities, the pastor need report no income or deductions related to it. And better yet, there are no accountings, reimbursements, allowances, or record-keeping requirements, a relief for most pastors.
