The 2017 editions of tax preparation booklets for USA ministers and church treasurers are now available. You can download them at these links: Ministers' Taxes Made Easy and Church Reporting Made Easy.
These reliable resources are rich with information prepared by church tax specialists Dan Busby, J. Michael Martin, and John Van Drunen of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). These are the latest updates and are for the 2016 tax year.
The guides are designed to simplify the unique tax situations faced by ministers and churches. In particular, the guide for ministers includes examples of completed returns. The guide for church treasurers features forms that must be filed by congregations. The ECFA makes these available resources available to Nazarene ministers at no cost.
“For many years, ministers and treasurers have relied on these useful tax guides,” said Don Walter, director of Pensions and Benefits USA. “We are grateful to Dan Busby and the ECFA for continuing to provide these excellent tools.”
