As a general statement, church and ministry organizations are accorded a greater degree of autonomy and noninterference by public regulatory agencies than other non-profit corporations and for profit corporations. However, various regulatory and statutory requirements do affect religious non-profit corporations in all states. Furthermore, various federal and state laws impact the management and administration of employment and tax issues. As a general preposition, in some states, churches are not required to make the annual filings that are required of other non-profit organizations (i.e. registration with the Attorney General, federal income tax returns, state franchise tax returns, etc.). However, there are exceptions to this general rule, which obligate church and ministry organizations to comply with such reporting obligations.
