880.0000 WELFARE EXEMPTION
(d) WELFARE EXEMPTION—RELIGIOUS PURPOSES
880.0780 Religious Activity-Ticket Distribution. A qualifying religious activity, e.g., a church Christmas program, is not impacted for purposes of eligibility for the exemption because tickets are distributed, whether sold or gifted, even if a for-profit organization handles the distribution. The cost of the distribution is in the same category as the cost of programs or advertising and is an acceptable expense so long as no one benefits from providing the distribution service through the payment of excessive charges or compensation or through the more advantageous pursuit of its business. C 9/8/1988.
