Grassley Inquiry of Mega-Churches on Compliance with Tax-Exemption Laws

On December 6, 2007, the Christian Science Monitor reports about Senator Grassley's letter of inquiry to six mega-church leaders to secure information about the churches' compliance with federal tax-exemption laws.  The targets of the senate inquiry are asked to respond by this Friday "to questions on issues ranging from compensation and housing allowances to personal use of assets and unreported income."
