2015 Clergy Tax Guide for 2014 Taxes

2015 Clergy Tax Guide

Zondervan 2015 Minister’s Tax Guide

Clergy taxes just got a little less taxing, thanks to the new 2015 clergy tax guide published by Zondervan.

The 2015 Minister’s Tax & Financial Guide is an essential resource for any pastor, church leader, or accountant that has questions about, or needs to file, clergy tax returns.

This annual clergy tax guide is written by Dan Busby and John VanDrunen, long-time clergy tax, accounting and legal experts, and executives with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.  Busby serves as ECFA’s president, and VanDrunen is their vice-president and in-house legal counsel.

For years, pastors and other clergy have trusted the Minister’s Tax Guide to save them time and money when it comes to filing and paying their taxes. This easy-to-understand workbook simplifies the tax code and offers dozens of tips to reduce your tax bill. 

What’s in the 2015 Minister’s Tax & Financial Guide?

The 2015 Zondervan Minister’s Tax & Financial Guide offers several great features, including a line-by-line explanation of the 1040 form, as well as information on recent changes in the tax code – like how Obamacare regulations impact ministers and other clergy.

This edition also includes sound retirement planning helps, clergy compensation planning guidance, and ways to maximize business expense reimbursements. And it even shares easy things pastors can do right now to minimize next year’s tax bill!

My denomination, the Wesleyan Church, used to give a custom version of this clergy tax guide out to all our pastors every year, but that special deal ended a few years ago, I guess.

Since then, I’ve purchased the Zondervan Minister’s Tax & Financial Guide each year to help me file my somewhat-complicated clergy taxes. Gratefully, it’s priced at only $15.99, but I’ve seen it as low as $11.94 right now on Amazon, making it affordable for all pastors and clergy members, whether full-time or bi-vocational.
