Today’s 4th and final installment on structuring your church for growth is going to be a bit of a turn from the previous 3 posts.
I would dare say that the vast majority of pastors I talk to about this are currently erring on one of two sides when it comes to the way they’re getting paid:
1) They are unsure/afraid that they’re in violation of Federal and/or State tax laws, or 2) They are leaving a considerable amount of money on the table (ie: paying more than their share of taxes).
What does this have to do with your church growing? Well, you’re not going to be able to devote your attention to leading your church if you’re too busy looking over your shoulder for the tax man!
With the special nature of clergy tax laws and the myriad of unique rules and potential pitfalls, I have one big recommendation, Pastor:
I recommend Steve Merriman and his team at Clergy Advantage (formerly Clergy Financial). They know more about clergy tax law than anyone I have ever met – including the IRS!
I’ve never been more thankful for the Clergy Advantage team than I was about a year and a half ago when I was audited by the IRS.
The minor expense of paying for a group of people who work with clergy salary issues EVERYDAY is more than worth the peace of mind of knowing you’re in good hands.
Don’t waste another day living in fear when it comes to your taxes – Get some help!
P.S. Clergy Advantage is offering a Free Webinar on Tuesday, December 15, called “Tax Free Money for Ministers.” You can read more and register now by clicking this link.
