GuideStone releases 2012 Ministers Tax Guide

DALLAS (BP) — The 2012 edition of GuideStone’s annual Tax Return Preparation and Federal Reporting Guide is now available.

The guide provides active and retired ministers step-by-step help in understanding the latest tax laws, along with sample tax forms to assist them in preparing their 2011 federal tax returns.

The guide was written once again by Richard Hammar, a noted CPA, attorney and published author who specializes in legal and tax issues for ministers. Additionally, the material is edited by GuideStone’s compliance staff to address the tax issues that affect the greatest number of Southern Baptist pastors.

“We’re privileged to provide this resource to ministers and their tax preparers,” said O.S. Hawkins, GuideStone’s president. “Each year, we’re reminded of how thankful we are to help them successfully navigate the unique ministerial tax laws with this useful guide.”

The tax guide, which also includes a special section detailing federal reporting requirements for churches, can be obtained in PDF format at www.GuideStone.org/TaxGuide. GuideStone participants can order a free printed copy by calling 1-888-98-GUIDE (1-888-984-8433) between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CST Monday-Friday.
