Verifying Donations?

Posted by taxguru on October 18, 2007

A little joke courtesy of Pastor Tim’s Clean Laughs:

*IRS Call*

When the minister picked up the phone, Special Agent Struzik from the IRS was on the line.

“Hello, is this the minister?”

“Yes, this is.”

“I’m calling to inquire about a member of your congregation, a Dr. Shipe. Do you recognize the name?”

“Yes, he is a member of our congregation. How can I be of service?”

“Well, on last year’s tax return, the doctor claimed that he made a sizable tax-deductable contribution to your church. Is this true?”

“Well, I’ll have to have our bookkeeper verify this information for you. How much did Dr. Shipe say he contributed?”

“Twenty five thousand dollars,” answered Agent Struzik. “Can you tell me if that amount is true?”

There is a long pause. “I’ll tell you what,” replied the minister…….

“Call back tomorrow. I’m sure it will be.”
