We want to rent out the church parsonage. What tax issues do we need to be aware of?
You must put the property back on the property tax roll. This can be accomplished by visiting the office of your county tax appraiser.
In regard to a tax-exempt organization under Internal Revenue Code 501, IRC Section 512(b) exempts from tax the unrelated business income derived from rent of real property, unless the property is not owned debt-free. If there is a mortgage on the parsonage, any rental income is subject to the Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT). To read more about UBIT, click here.
