The Attorney General’s Office (AGU) and the Ministry of Finance have reached a consensus with the Evangelical Bank to revive the Interpretative Declaratory Act (ADI), a mechanism that expands tax exemption on the remuneration of church leaders.

The negotiation, reports the newspaper The globe This Friday, the 29th, falls in the context of the decline in the popularity of the Lula government among believers of the Pentecostal denominations.

The agreed text will be reissued to ensure that the benefit is extended to various “professionalizing activities”. As agreed, a pastor or priest will be exempt from tax deductions if paid for Sunday lessons or religious courses.

By law, churches are not required to pay Social Security taxes on the salaries of religious workers. The change to the rule aims precisely to expand the benefit for extra activities within the institutes.

The publication of the new edition could take place in the next few days by the Federal Revenue Service. Even with the new agreement, religious leaders remain obliged to pay taxes on consumption, like every citizen.
