Establishment Clause

Gaylor v. Mnuchin, DC Wisc. (Oct. 12, 2017):  “A federal district court has once again decided that the exemption for housing allowances provided to ministers under Code Sec. 107(2) violates the Establishment Clause. The court determined that the purpose and effect of the statute was to provide financial assistance to ministers without any consideration for similarly situated secular employees. Therefore, the statute has no secular purpose and could not be justified on secular grounds.” (CCH)
