Kanye West Registers Sunday Service As A Non-Profit Organization W/ Tax-Exempt Status

Kanye West is out here making money moves for his church service!

According to The Sun, Sunday Service–an event founded by Kanye West back in early 2019–has recently been granted tax-exempt status as a non-profit organization. It’s worth noting that, because churches are considered public charities, they’re usually exempt from having to pay any taxes.

According to legal documents obtained by the news outlet, the paperwork was filed by California’s Secretary of State back on March 23rd, 2021. The paperwork also lists Kanye West‘s $2.2 million Calabasas ranch as the official headquarters for Sunday Service, though the property has allegedly been converted into a bachelor pad recently. Additionally, the documents reveal that Kanye West hired attorney Karl F. Mill, who specifically specializes in non-profit organizations, to help with the endeavor.

Notably, with this new tax-exempt and non-profit status, Sunday Service is barred from:

“Participat[ing]  in, or interven[ing] in (including the publication or distribution of statements), any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.”

Resultingly, it doesn’t look like the church will be endorsing Kanye West for any potential presidential bids in the future! He ran last year after announcing his campaign on the 4th of July.

This decision comes about five months following a lawsuit filed by Sunday Service’s church choir. In two separate lawsuits, more than 800 performers and employees affiliated with Sunday Service are suing the rapper for unpaid wages and mistreatment.
