This annually published book provides invaluable information for managing the business side of a church.
The Church Guide to Internal Controls by Richard Vargo (Church Law and Tax Report) is a great resource for understanding internal controls that ensure the integrity of accounting and financial information. Check out this book online.
The Church and Nonprofit Tax & Financial Guide published by Zondervan comes out each year and includes the latest tax law changes, expert advice on handling charitable gifts, and key financial policies and procedures. Check online for availability.
I started using the Zondervan "Church and Nonprofit Tax & Financial Guide" by Dan Busby a few years back. I just ordered the 2011 edition for 2010 tax returns and received it from Amazon. I recommend that every US church own this book as a resource for their church treasurer, administrator, and/or bookkeeper.
