America’s richest pastor avoids $150,000 in annual taxes on a $7 million Texas mansion that he said God told him to build

(Bill Bostock – Yahoo News) America’s wealthiest pastor avoided paying more than $150,000 in annual taxes on his $7 million Texas mansion, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Kenneth Copeland, a famous televangelist who founded Eagle Mountain International Church, built a six-bedroom mansion near Fort Worth in 1999.

Copeland is worth $750 million and owns multiple properties and several private jets, the Chronicle said. The jets are housed at a nearby airport named after him.

Under Texas law, pastors’ homes, known as parsonages, can get a 100% exemption from property taxes.

Local authorities said Copeland is within his rights to claim the house as a parsonage, even though the law was likely never intended to cover super-rich religious figures like him. View article →
