My client is a Church with 501C (3) exemption. An Individual offered to donate "X" stocks to the church. my understanding the church needs to open a brokerage account to transfer the stocks, correct? 

When the church receive the stocks & sell them, do we have to report the sales to the IRS? right now church is exempt from filing taxes?
