2019 501(c)3 Group Tax Exemption Ruling


To: Pastors and Administrators

Parish Secretaries, Bookkeepers and Accountants

From: Father LaMorte

Re: 501(c)3 Group Tax Exemption Ruling

Attached is a copy of the 2019 group ruling letter issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) confirming that organizations listed in the 2019 edition of The Official Catholic Directory are recognized as exempt under section 501(c) of the tax code.

When you are asked for proof of tax-exempt status, the following letter, copies of the Kenedy title page and the page which lists your parish information should easily satisfy any request.

Kindly share this memo and these documents with your parish bookkeeper and accountant.
