Magistrate Sides with Church in IRS Case

A Minnesota church apparently has won its latest round with the Internal Revenue Service.

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota church apparently has
won its latest round with the Internal Revenue Service.

A federal magistrate is siding with the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park in its dispute with the federal government.

The church contends it doesn't have to give the IRS detailed financial information focusing on the compensation of founder and senior pastor James (Mac) Hammond.
A federal judge will decide whether to follow that recommendation.

An attorney and spokeswoman for the church says Hammond and
other church officials are pleased with the magistrate's recommendation.
