I read through several others. Bottom line is that it seems very rare that a church would sell property, period. So, just because the JWs have been selling their property for millions, doesn't mean there is anything shady going on. I'm sure the other churches' properties are also worth millions.
And there's nothing for the IRS to do. Whenever the JW corporation files their taxes, these properties aren't listed as assets. And when they are sold, they aren't listed as income. If it were you or me, then these would be reflected as a 'Captial Gains' schedule (D?), and we would pay on the sale price less the purchase price, less any depreciation over these 30+ years. And, on top of that, the IRS has a provision that if you use that money to buy other property, you don't even get hit with those capital gains. They get rolled into the new property.
Anyway, I'm off track here. Find me another church who sold their property, and I'll see if there's a public deed we can look up.
