Using the 2014 Ministers' Tax Guide
Ministerial tax issues can be complicated. Ministers can find additional help in preparing their federal income tax returns from GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.
The Ministers' Tax Guide is a popular annual booklet focused on tax issues most likely to affect ministers and churches. It includes sample tax returns for both active and retired ministers. Church treasurers and other leaders will find a valuable resource in the guide's special section about important federal requirements for churches.
