The chief tax appraiser for Tarrant County, Texas, has ruled that prominent televangelist Kenneth Copeland must disclose his ministries' salaries or pay taxes on a new private jet, reports a Texas/Ft. Worth news state. "Copeland's salary is also the subject of a United States Senate Finance Committee investigation. He is one of six televangelists that have been asked by Sen. Charles Grassley to supply salary information. Four of the six are cooperating with Grassley's investigation. Thus far, Copeland has refused. He said his salary is constitutionally protected from disclosure."
