The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is fighting to have the ministerial housing allowance removed from the tax code and declared unconstitutional. A federal judge has already ruled in their favor. It’s time to stand up and protect our churches—and ministers like you who rely on the housing allowance.
In October 2017, U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb from the Western District of Wisconsin declared the ministerial housing allowance unconstitutional. Judge Crabb’s decision is on hold and has been appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. And that’s where you come in.
We have an opportunity to remind the court of the importance and constitutionality of this time-honored tradition by filing a friend-of-the-court brief in the case.
