Accounting Group

The Accounting Group can assist your staff with questions regarding the contributions your church makes to the SC Baptist Convention. This includes questions you may have concerning the giving statements you receive from us and the amounts reported in the Year to Date Missions Contributions Report.  A report of church contributions is mailed to each church treasurer after the close of each calendar quarter and a report is mailed to the pastor after the close of the calendar year.

Non-profit Tax Exempt Status

The Accounting Group can also provide your church with a 501(c)(3) letter. This letter can be used to prove your non-profit tax exempt status with the IRS. Your eligibility is based on your church's giving to the work of the SC Baptist Convention, through the Cooperative Program, during the previous calendar year.  Please note that churches are not exempt from paying Sales and Use Tax in South Carolina.
