What if your church owes property taxes for your church property the church itself where you currently hold services due to the fact that during the time of acquisition you did not hold 501c3 status a?
Having 501c status is relevant to income taxes. It may, or may not make th real property owned non taxed. That depends on each little taxing jurisdcition.
As long as your Property is listed as taxable, it is (or was) and the church owes the tax...or the community it is in should/will/can/must seize the property and sell it for back taxes just like any other.
There are 132 temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) operating worldwide. (as of May 24, 2010) There are also 8 under construction and 12 announced (property and building permits are currently pending). Temples are used for special meetings and services, such as marriages, and are only open to baptized members of the Church who have received a reccommendation from their local leaders. Regular worship services are…
One of the most enduring achievements was the Civil Code also called the Napoleonic code. These reformed the old regime tax rules into laws for property, property acquisition, and personal property. He reformed the government run public schools called Lycees which allowed males of all social status to attend school. Graduates where appointed to government office based on merit rather than family influence. Also the Concordat - this reestablished the connection with the church. Signed…

Why did the service of caring for the sick change as a result of the split between King Henry and the Catholic Church?
Brendon Urie, the lead singer of Panic at the Disco, was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) but stopped attending services after graduating high school. Although he is not currently a practicing Mormon, he has not had his membership revoked and is still technically a member of the Church.
Since Henry the VIII the Church of England has been the state church. When the Reformation took place he removed and took over Catholic Church property. Priests had to hide and services were held in secret. No king or queen could be anything other than a member of the Church of England. Other religions were discriminated against.
If you are asking about the mission it is still a working church with services, weddings, funerals, and festivals. The mission is part of California state property and parks system as well as the Catholic Church. Tours are done daily and you can visit the church and gardens. The state does the upkeep of the mission and repairs the buildings.
Today it is state park property and it is still used for masses, funerals, marriages, and other religious services. Tours can be taken by visitors and a museum is located on the site. People can visit the gardens and walk around the mission grounds. Celebrations are still held on special days each year and holidays have services. It is an active church and historical property.
Church Homecomings' are special services usually set on the anniversary date of the founding of the church. Services are normally themed to acknowledge those saints who not only founded the church but over the years have contributed to the well being of the church and the body of believers. The services can also be a great aid in drawing the body of believers closer to God, one another and the church.
Churches are private property. The government is not allowed to own or operate a church, and government ownership is the primary requirement to be public property. Any and all property owned by the church, including the parking lot, lawns, cemeteries, etc., would all be private property and access is restricted even if not posted.
Yes it is permissible to hold church services in a home. I well remember when coming to Australia holding services in the cabin with members of my faith. The Lord said "Where two or more are gathered together in my name there shall I be also". On arriving in Australia our church held services in the local village hall until we built a chapel suitable for holding all church services. In Western Australia we held…
Does the Mormon church pay property taxes for their poor elderly members to gain the property later?
Because that's where they work! I many cases they are also responsible for insuring the safety of the church. They can serve as 'watchman' of the church. And since they often conduct services and pray, it makes sense. The other factor is that the church owns and maintains the house for their clergy, it is built on the same property. They still live near the churches!
LDS Family Services, as well as all other Church-operated community outreach programs (Deseret Industries, Humanitarian Services, Bishop's Storehouse, etc) are overseen by the Presiding Bishop (currently Bishop H. David Burton) and his two councelors. The Presiding Bishop reports directly to the First Presidency.
Unless there is some specific agreement between the synagogue and the relevant Christian congregation (such as a synagogue allowing Christians to pray in the synagogue on Sundays while the Christians' church is in repair), church services do not take place in synagogues. If by "church services", you actually meant "religious services," Jewish services in synagogues are held three times per day; in the morning, afternoon and evening.
