How to Save on Clergy Taxes (Free Webinar from Clergy Advantage)

Sermon prep, Sunday follow-up, staff meetings, prayer requests, communication with the congregation, worship planning….

These are just a few of the items on your weekly to-do list that probably keep you from staying up to date on the latest changes in IRS tax laws.

And with the complexity of the typical pastor salary package and ministry expenses, it’s no wonder why many pastors get nervous – even afraid – around tax time.

Not me! (at least not anymore)

Several years ago I begin working with Steve Merriman and the team at Clergy Advantage on my salary, housing allowance, retirement and tax documents. They’ve been amazing to work with.

The team there eats, sleeps and breathes clergy tax law, so I don’t have to try and keep  up with all the changes.

They even handled everything for me when I was audited back in 2006 (you can read about that here).

I’m writing today because Clergy Advantage is offering a FREE Webinar next week called:

Don’t Let Ministry Expenses Eat Your Lunch.
Set Up a Hassle Free Accountable Plan.

I highly recommend that you sign up and carve out an hour on one of the dates below to make sure you’re being a good steward of your finances.  Not only will they make sure you’re not in danger, but also that you’re not missing out on any potential benefits or deductions.

Here are all the details:

Every minister and church treasurer or finance committee MUST understand why and how an Accountable Plan is the ONLY way to account for Ministry Expenses.  Ministers are extremely vulnerable to IRS audit in several areas.   If you’re like most, you’re leaving a lot of money on the table at meal times and when entertaining.

Properly account for all ministry expenses including car mileage, travel, meals and entertainment:

• Increase your Take Home Pay
• Get Tremendous Tax Savings
• Reduce Audit Risk
• Spend NOTHING to implement a plan
• Maintain it Easily

So what is an Accountable Plan? Trust us, it’s NOT as scary as it sounds. It’s actually  a lot more frightening NOT to have one.  Simply put, it makes you accountable to the church for your expenses rather than the IRS.  In so doing, it completely removes those expenses from the tax return providing all the benefits listed above.

Not only all that, but it’s NOT Complicated if you follow our extremely easy design.  We’ve done the work for you now you can experience the rewards of our labors.

Discover how easy it is for your church treasurer to maintain and how much better this will work for you.

This is so important that we’re waiving the usual $99 fee and are making it available at NO  CHARGE. It’s free, easy and painless, (we promise).  There’s no reason to put it off any longer.  Register below and see how easy it is to get your house in order and start saving.
