I was frankly shocked when someone here mentioned that D.M. Quinn estimated 2014's tithing income at, if I recall correctly, $34 billion dollars.

If you posit 5 million tithe payers, that $6,800 per tithe payer. But there can't be 5 million tithe payers.

Anyway, it's a lot of money but not much of a religion.

I agree with Dog. The numbers just don't add up. And I was a professional accountant for 40 years and could manipulate spreadsheets with the best of them.

Nope. And no pocket protector either! I was a complete individual, if that is possible in the beancounter world. :)

Fred Karger and his group at Mormontips.com is gathering information to file a tax-fraud complaint with the IRS in order to get TCOJCOLDS to lose its tax-exempt status.

He appreciates any email reporting stories of elderly folks getting hoodwinked, knowledge of crooked contracts, etc.

Our own Anagrammy relayed the story of elderly folks who donated property for a church parking lot. They noticed an apartment building going up on that site, looked into ownership, and found that the property had been gifted to a GA's son. She forwarded that story to tips@mormontips.com.

Scientology is a good start, now the rest of the religions need to lose their tax status...

I am very sad to announce that, for the first time in my life, I agree about something with Donald Trump...

I concur with Mr. Trump and other comments above for him to expand exemptiness to all religions and cults. He loves $ and is looking for places to squeeze the juice out of any orange he can find. Glad to hear action is being taken on contacting the IRS with a tax fraud claim against the cult. It's a good beginning.
