IRS raids offices of preacher Benny Hinn
IRS agents descended on the north Texas headquarters of television evangelist Benny Hinn and took boxes of evidence out of the offices.
The search began at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Hinn’s headquarters in Grapevine, near the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
According to the Associated Press, anywhere from 40 to 50 federal agents entered the offices on Wednesday morning and as of Thursday morning, IRS officials and Postal Inspection police were reportedly still continuing to work.
“Today, we are here on official business, we are conducting a search warrant on the premises, basically that’s all I can tell you today,” Special Agent Michael Moseley with IRS Criminal Investigations told ABC affiliate WFAA.
Benny Hinn Ministries released a statement after the federal agents began their raid.
In a Facebook post, the ministry stated that they were co-operating fully with the IRS investigation.
“As has been widely reported, Benny Hinn Ministries is co-operating fully with the governmental entities that are reviewing certain operations of the Church,” the statement read. “The ministry has undergone intense scrutiny over the years, and we remain confident that there will again be a positive and speedy outcome in the days ahead.”
