Here We Go: IRS Reportedly Recognizes Lesbian Feminists’ ‘Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft’ as a Legitimate Religion

The IRS has reportedly recognized the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft as a legitimate church.

The Maryland-based group is dedicated exclusively to lesbian feminists.

Peter Reilly, a CPA for over 30 years focusing on taxation, first reported the new designation in a blog post for Forbes.

“The IRS recognized it as a 501(c)(3) organization and went the extra step of recognizing PCMW as a church, the most enviable of all tax statuses exempt not only from income tax but also from the transparency that filing Form 990 creates,” Reilly wrote.

“A church does not have to apply for exempt status, but it is a prudent step particularly for an innovative organization like PCMW. My source indicated that the approval process was reasonably quick and there was no push-back from the IRS,” he added.

The Christian Post reached out to the IRS for confirmation of the designation Wednesday but officials noted that they are prevented by law from discussing individual cases.

determination letter on the church, publicly available on the IRS’ website dated May 2017, notes that the IRS initially recognized the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft as a private foundation that was required to file Form 990-PF disclosure forms or risk losing their tax exempt status if they failed to file for three consecutive years.

“Some organizations that identify themselves as churches may appear on the Automatic Revocation of Exemption List (Auto-Revocation List) because IRS records do not identify them as churches, but rather as some other type of organization that has an annual filing requirement,” explains an IRS advisory.

Since last May however, the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft appears to have legally maneuvered their way out of that classification but it is unclear when exactly this happened.

The church did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
