Please note that "Religion-Related" organizations include all organizations filing with the IRS, but do NOT include all religious organizations. Religious congregations and organizations with less than $5,000 in annual revenue are not required to register with the IRS, although many do. The standard source for estimates of religious congregations is the American Church Lists, a company thatprovides marketing data using phone listings and other sources. As of this note, the most recent American Church Lists estimates suggest there are about 345,000 houses of worship in the United States. Of these, approximately 220,000 are registered with the IRS, according to NCCS analysis of the June 2014 IRS Business Master File. See “Church Specialty List,” InfoUSA, accessed December 10, 2014,
