DALLAS (BP) — GuideStone Financial Resources has released its Ministers’ Tax Guide for 2014 Returns.
The annual handbook provides step-by-step instructions for both active and retired ministers, sample forms and detailed help in understanding the latest tax laws. Additionally, church treasurers and other church leaders will find a valuable resource in the guide’s special section about important federal requirements for churches.
GuideStone participants can receive the free guide by visiting www.GuideStone.org/TaxGuide or can request a free printed copy by calling 1-888-98-GUIDE (1-888-984-8433).
The guide was written again this year by Richard Hammar, a noted CPA, attorney and widely published author who specializes in legal and tax issues for ministers.
Additionally, the material is edited by GuideStone’s compliance staff to ensure that it addresses tax issues in detail directly affecting Southern Baptist pastors.
“Each year, federal tax law can change, and ministers have come to trust in the Ministers’ Tax Guide as they prepare their taxes or work with their preparer,” GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins said. “It is a joy to hear from so many pastors who tell us how thankful they are for this guide and how much it helps them navigate the unique ministerial tax laws. We are blessed to be able to help them with the important task of ensuring that their income tax returns are correct.”
