UBIT and Other Income with Elaine Sommerville


The church may be ”tax exempt” in many areas, but today’s creative ideas often lead to potential tax consequence on both a federal level and a state level. This session reviews several common areas of activities that can generate unrelated business income tax for the church unless special care and planning is achieved.

Learning Outcomes

  1. The participate will learn what UBI (Unrelated Business Income) is and how it affects his/her church.

  3. The participant will realize the importance of compliance with local, state and federal laws governing the sale of items, rentals, operation of bookstores, coffee shops and other unrelated business income.
  4. The participant will be able to explain and give examples of the importance of understanding UBI, how it is applicable to his/her church and convey that importance to the leadership of his/her church.
