A lot of people believe that churches should pay taxes. On one hand, churches are considered ‘charities’ and charities are exempt from paying taxes. On the other hand, there are various ‘churches’ that are not really charities–not in the traditional sense, anyway.
The chances are high that you do not even know anyone who earns $400,000 dollars per year, never mind earn that yourself. Perhaps your medical doctor. maybe your Lawyer. The point here is that very few people actually earn $400,000 per year.
