Pastor indicted for tax evasion

How much do pastors make? Bishop Anthony L. Jinwright apparently rolls around in the greenbacks just to take a bath.

anthonyjinwright The 16-page indictment says Jinwright failed to report $875,000 in taxable income for him and his wife, Harriet Porter-Jinwright. She is listed on the church Web site as a co-pastor, but is not charged.

The indictment alleges Jinwright owes from $200,000 to $400,000 in unpaid federal and state income taxes.

The indictment also details salary and reimbursements of $3.1 million for Jinwright from the church from 2001-2006. It also lists more than $400,000 in income from speaking engagements and book sales.

The “Bishop” likes his cars. He drives a Bentley, a BMW 530i, a Mercedes-Benz S550V, five Lexus vehicles and a Maybach 57.  I’m willing to bet Jinwright preaches Prosperity theology.

You can watch Bishop Jinwright give his trademark performance here. Get that man a Bentley.
