ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) has created two eBooks to help pastors and churches navigate taxes.
- Ministers' Taxes Made Easy: includes a sample 2019 tax return for an active and a retired minister, along with helpful information on the housing allowance, social security, and business expenses.
- Church Reporting Made Easy: covers the basic filings churches must make in early 2020.
Both of these informative eBooks are based on the full-sized tax guides published annually by Zondervan.
Ministers' Taxes Made Easy and Church Reporting Made Easy are available for free through Financial Shalom's partnership with ECFA's ChurchEXCEL.ChurchEXCEL, the financial resource website of ECFA, contains practical help from experts on a wide variety of financial topics.
