Terms and Conditions
You may not sign up if your business receives government or public money, grants, or other government or public money. As an integrated auxillary and tax free church entity, your money must come from "interior church sources" which mean you and your work/efforts as a member of the church as one its world citizens and private business owners. Any business dealing with the government is not separate from the state and will be rejected. IF you sign up to conduct a church business as a church member and you are receiving public or government money for it, you now admit that you did this fraudulently and without our knowledge. You also agree that you, not the church or any of its members, are fully liable for any such costs or prosecutions by the IRS or government.
There is an $80 USD fee to set up your church business. You understand this is non-refundable and you have no recourse to this. The church makes no money off this fee and in fact looses money as we take our time to go to court for you and set up your business for you. At the court, a DBA costs $40 and the newspaper publishing costs $40, both of which are required to obtain your bank account. Every five years at the court we are expected to update your DBA for you. At this time, the filing fee will be deducted from your business account. We will track the filing date and handle all court filings for you!
You agree your Church Business will have a 2.5-10% or custom tithe taken off each bank account deposit you make, or taken weekly, bi weekly or monthly out of your account, which will automatically go to the main Church bank account to fund food programs and more. No taxes. forms, or accounting are to be sent in to the IRS. (Tithes are arranged individually by business type). You understand and agree that these tithes are non-refundable and you have no recourse on this, Also you indemnify the World Church and all its related associates, partners, and auxiliary businesses for any of your tithes, the set up fee, or for any other effect that working with the church and setting up a business may incur upon you. This includes but is not limited to, your own profit and loss in your church business, your ability or inability to use your church business to obtain a mortgage, car, or apartment lease for yourself, and etc.
The start up fees, DBA filing fees (every 5 years, subject to change upon the court's whim) and your agreed upon Tithes will be your only expenses. We take every measure to ensure that your tithes add up to far less than you would pay in taxes to the US government, and use the tithes to benefit the world and communities.
The Church agrees that any money in your account MINUS the agreed upon Tithe (if accepted, this form will be emailed to you to sign) that the church does not control take or use anything else in our church business account and that all the money in there is to be used by you for your business and life enrichment purposes. If you feel an error has been made please contact us so that we can go over the accounting before you take us to small claims or regular court. The Church pledges honesty and transparency in this business with you and hopes to have many happy and thriving church businesses :)
FILING TAXES - FORBIDDEN
It is MANDATORY that you agree NOT to file taxes NOR exemption of taxes paperwork with the IRS for the church business you are authorized to manage. Doing so will result in your immediate termination as a church business, and prosecution of fraud, as you are not the Church Overseer/Pastor. The Church will take all responsibility, and conduct all transactions and paperwork with the IRS. NO OTHER PERSONS ARE VALID CHURCH REPRESENTATIVES TO THE IRS OR GOVERNMENT(s) OTHER THAN THE WORLD CHURCH'S PASTOR. The Church is required by law, to MANDITORILY NOT FILE ANY PAPERWORK WITH THE IRS according to 26 USC § 508. If you are contacted by the IRS you are to immediately notify the Church Pastor at the CONTACT PAGE with a scan of the letter or IRS communications so we can handle it for you. You agree that if you did make any communications with the government or IRS that your communications are now recanted, that you consider them to be fraud, and you immediately withdraw all such communications to the IRS or Government and allow the church to speak for on your and the Church's behalf, as well as that of your church business.
THIS INCLUDES SALES TAXES. DO NOT PAY ANY SALES OR OTHER TAXES. We will provide you with a legal church certificate to hang on your wall in lieu of your sales tax certificate! DO NOT send any taxes in AT ALL or we will immediately remove you as a church business! You business IS NOT TO PAY CITY OR STATE Taxes (or any government taxes), however, we do recommend you obtain all necessary licensing, not because you are contracting with the government, but to say to them that we respect them and their ordinances.
IF you write checks out to yourself (your legal name) from your church business account please note that the IRS may now consider that to be your legal income, and that money may be taxable under the IRS under your own legal name and social security number, so we don't recommend doing that unless you want to be taxed on an income so that you have tax statements each year. At that point you will file with the IRS with your name and social security number only for the amount of checks you wrote to yourself out of your church business account as your salary. IN no way shape or form shall this be confused with filing with the IRS for your church business or the church.
NSFs - CLOSURE OF ACCOUNTS
If you acquire any NSF's on your bank account or other unpaid fees; you the business owner will be responsible for paying the fees, and we may choose to release (reject) your business as a church business, shut down the bank account, and send you back to the government. You agree to be responsible for the fees when we take you to mall claims court over the fees an you agree of your own free will that you have no recourse for such actions, and you indemnify the Church and all its related businesses and members for any action of the church in regards to shutting down your business, transferring your business to the Church, for the tithing you have agreed to, and for any other actions of the church relating to your business. You agree that you are at your own risk in creating your business as a Church business with us, but that the Church will do everything in its power to protect you, but that you indemnify the church against all results and consequences of signing up as a Church business. The Church can close any business or bank account which is in bad standing or accumulating NSF charges (non sufficient funds) or which violates our moral policies of business practice (such as human trafficking or other) without notice and you understand it is at the Church's sole discretion to determine what is a moral, acceptable business to us or not. The Church business you own and operate for the Church, can be used to obtain a mortgage, business loan, or other by showing the paperwork to the loan officers. However, the mortgage, business loan, etc. that you obtain, must go in your name, not the church's name. The Church will not be responsible for loans and mortgages taken out which are not repaid, therefore these loans must be taken out in your name, not the Church's name. You agree that you are committing fraud by attempting to take out any loan, mortgage, or other such business matter in the Church's name and you agree to be persecuted as guilty, or no contest, if you are discovered to be performing such actions. The Church bank account/business you run, can be used as verification and proof of your income to help obtain these loans for yourself. The Church will vouch for you as an employer or umbrella corporation but any person/business attempting to take out a loan of any kind in the Church's name will be immediately terminated as a Church business and subject to prosecution for fraud. These terms and conditions are subject to change and new changes will immediately be posted on the website for you to view at all times. You agree to this and all future Terms And Conditions, and have the right at any time to stop doing business with the church. If you wish to end your association with the Church, please contact us and we will close your bank account and send you a check for all moneys out of the account which you have not already withdrawn. I understand that I must turn over all of my business papers, customers, and other related business matters to the church if requested, so an investigation may be done into my business matters. If it is discovered that I am using the church to do anything not morally acceptable to the church, I will have my account terminated, all my money sent back to me, and will no longer be allowed to work with the church. I will let the church into my property to conduct such investigation and if not, I understand the church can terminate my account and business on suspicion of nefarious activity alone, with no recourse to me and I indemnify the church in such cases.
MORTGAGES, LOANS, AND OTHER ITEMS OBTAINED BY USING YOUR CHURCH BANK ACCOUNT/OUR VERIFICATIONS OF YOU
You agree that any loans, mortgages, or other such items you use your business account to obtain, must be made in YOUR NAME with your social security number, not the church's name or your church business name, (Unless the item is 100% paid off - then you may request special permission from us to place it under your tax free church business name) or it will be considered fraud. The church may also take sole possession of any items which you obtained fraudulently in our name in order to sell it or use it in other ways to recover potential damages to us. We will supply letters of employment and/or business ownership, whatever you need to obtain your mortgages. Don't forget to CLEAN YOUR CREDIT before you apply for loans, as you need employment PLUS good credit to get a mortgage, etc. Your deposits will be the proof of your monthly income, so if you are working towards a business loan or mortgage, deposit as much as you can into your church business account.
The Church may need your online bank account password to: 1) transfer the Tithes 2) confirm your business income as your employer if you are requesting such service from the church in order to obtain a car, a mortgage, or an apartment, If this is the case you will be assigned a password and we ask that you do not change it or we may revoke your status with us and return you to the IRS. in this case, all of the money in your account will be sent to you and your account closed down. If this happens, any money you have sent to you may be considered to be income and subject to IRS taxation, please consult your CPA. If you need a new password please notify us immediately through our contact form and include your full name, and account number, as well as phone number.
The Church will consider applications to run a church business which do NOT:
1) non-consensually harm, kill, enslave, or abuse living beings, such as animals or children.
2) engage in activities the Church finds morally reprehensible such as businesses based on theft, destruction of property, distribution of harmful drugs, etc.
3) Other activities the Church may find disagreement with.
The Church reserves the right to investigate any Church owned business to ensure the business is following these guidelines, and you agree in full to this with no protest or recourse; if not, the Church may terminate the business and the business owner must continue their business under the umbrella and laws of your country's government and taxation system. You agree the church may terminate your business with the church at any time for any reason, and in which case the church will return your money to you, and dissolve your church bank account. You agree to this with no recourse and hold the church harmless in no blame for any such situation.
