No tax relief yet from Congress for churches
Congress has failed, to this point, to heed the latest urgent request from a coalition led by the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission to rescind a provision in federal law requiring churches to file tax returns for the first time in American history.

The provision -- Section 512(a)(7) of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 -- requires houses of worship and other nonprofits to pay a 21 percent tax on such employee benefits as parking and transportation. The measure, which took effect Jan. 1, 2018, will cost the charitable sector an estimated $1.7 billion over 10 years, the ERLC-led coalition said in the letter. Opponents of the provision also have said it will burden churches and others with accounting and compliance costs not previously required.

In November, the ERLC led a 33-member coalition that urged congressional leaders to repeal the section before the end of the year, but ...

If Satan's secular servants attack the church then won't God protect and provide?

Matt 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."

"Providence is generally used to denote God's preserving and governing all things by means of second causes (Ps. 18:35; 63:8; Acts 17:28; Col. 1:17; Heb. 1:3). God's providence extends to the natural world ......
the affairs of men (1 Chr. 16: 31; Ps. 47:7; Prov. 21:1; Job 12:23; Dan.2:21; 4:25), and of individuals (1 Sam. 2:6; Ps. 18:30; Luke 1:53; James 4: 13-15). It extends also to the [voluntary] actions of men (Ex. 12:36; 1 Sam. 24:9-15; Ps. 33:14, 15; Prov. 16:1; 19:21; 20:24; 21:1)" (Monergism)

WCF 5/1:
"God the great Creator of all things does uphold, direct, dispose, and govern all creatures, actions, and things, from the greatest even to the least, by His most wise and holy providence, according to His infallible foreknowledge,and the free and immutable counsel of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His wisdom, power, justice, goodness, and mercy."

I haven’t drawn any conclusive opinion of this type of thing except IMO government financial intervention in religion or any type of charitable organization is never correct. If these entities can get a tax break, then usually that tax break comes at a cost.

I don’t believe any individual or charitable group should receive tax breaks because of their profession; whether that is pastoral, charitable, or houses of worship or any other thing that I can imagine. Most people don’t realize that even if someone is classified as a non-profit leader it doesn’t change their abilities to get wealthy. Franklin Graham has around a million dollar a year salary running his charitable, non-profit organization and the list goes on and on.

The below is from the article and it doesn’t change my opinion in the slightest. The signature list in the article reminded me of the Manhattan Declaration.

The provision -- Section 512(a)(7) of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 -- requires houses of worship and other nonprofits to pay a 21 percent tax on such employee benefits as parking and transportation.
