Paying tithing from C-Corporation funds?

Postby eljamaki01 » Mon Jul 23, 2018 7:15 pm

I just started a C-Corp and understand that legally, a C-Corp can make charitable contributions.
Would I just hook up my business checking account to pay that for my tithing?
That way it comes out before taxes as a business expense benefit.
I hope someone has done this before.
Or, maybe tithing is not considered a charitable contribution that a corporation can make?
I think the contribution from a corporation has be be sent in in their name, so how does that work?
Would I need an LDS account for my corporation?

You really ought to review this with a tax professional and then decide how to handle the transaction. There are several things that forum members might suggest. None of those forum members has to sign your tax return or defend the return in an audit if the transactions are questioned.
