The 44-year-old rapper -- who started the invite-only service in 2019 -- quietly registered the church as a tax-exempt non-profit in March of this year.

The filing obtained by The Sun, shows the Grammy-winning musician hired attorney Karl F. Mill. The San Francisco-based lawyer specializes in non-profit organizations.

His $2.2 million Calabasas bachelor pad -- where he lives amid his divorce with Kim Kardashian -- is listed as the church's headquarters.

It's allegedly the same home he used trees and a 50-foot wall to barricade himself in.

The documents state Kanye's corporation is not allowed "participate in, or intervene in [including the publication or distribution of statements], any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office" now that it's considered a non-profit.

It's an interesting move considering the Jesus Is King rapper -- who took the church on the road to Coachella -- is currently being sued for damages in two class-action lawsuits.

Last year, Kanye and Live Nation were sued over missed and delayed payments related to his first opera at the Hollywood Bowl with his Sunday Service choir.

That's not the only legal battle that Kanye is currently facing.

As Radar reported, Ye allegedly flew off the handle during a heated, court-ordered deposition.

According to All HipHop, MyChannel’s lawyers filed an emergency motion to get Kanye in court and he lost his s--- on the company's attorney, Michael Popok.

Kanye allegedly called Popok -- who is white -- "boy" at least 12 times during the virtual 10-minute deposition.

The rapper also wore a "full-face hood and head covering adorned with Jesus Christ’s image which obscured his face and muffled his voice," and said the legal team did not have a right to see his face.

Kanye also referred to himself as a “mental genius-ness" and called Popok "f---ing stupid" before storming away.
