Re: Govt plans to tax Pastors
What is Tax? Tax is the money government takes from the pay of workers and the profits of businesses.
Government also adds and takes 10% or more from the cost of goods, services, and other business transactions.
A church is not a business. For government to suggest that a church is a business is insulting to church-goers.
A church exists because people want to worship God.
The money collected by pastors is a donation by church-goers and not a business transaction.
A business exists because it wants to make a profit.
A church is a not-for-profit organisation.
An “offering” is not a business transaction but a donation.
Stupid idea from a desperate government.
