The IRS lists organizations that are qualified to receive
 
tax-deductible contributions in IRS Publication 78,
 
Cumulative List of Organizations Described in Section
 
170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
 
 
 
Automatic Exemption for Churches
 
“Churches that meet the requirements of IRC section
 
501(c)(3) are automatically considered tax exempt and
 
are not required to apply for and obtain recognition of
 
tax-exempt status from the IRS.”
 
 
 
“Contributors to a church that has been
 
recognized as tax exempt should reasonably assume that  their contributions
 
generally are tax-deductible.”
 
 
 
Churches with Parent Organizations or affiliated with or a part of a Larger Organization
 
“A church with a parent organization should contact
 
the parent organization to see if it has a group ruling. If the parent
 
holds a group ruling, then the IRS may already recognize
 
the church as tax exempt.”
 
 
 
“Under the group exemption process, the parent organization
 
becomes the holder of a group ruling that identifies other
 
affiliated churches or other affiliated organizations.”
 
 
 
 
“A church is recognized as tax exempt if it is included in a
 
 list provided by the parent organization. If the church or other affiliated
 
organization is included on such a list, it does not need to take
 
further action to obtain recognition of tax-exempt status."
 
 
 
Religious Organizations that are not Churches
 
 
 
“Religious organizations that
 
are not churches typically include nondenominational
 
ministries, interdenominational
 
and ecumenical organizations, and
 
other entities whose principal purpose is
 
the study or advancement of religion.”
 
 
 
 
 
Unlike churches, religious organizations that wish
 
to be tax exempt generally must apply to the IRS for
 
tax-exempt status unless their gross receipts do not
 
normally exceed $5,000 annually.”
