This popular annual tax guide, written by Richard Hammar, J.D., LL.M., CPA, includes sample tax returns for both active and retired ministers and step-by-step instructions for each. This edition contains a special supplement addressing the current status of the housing allowance exclusions. Additionally, church treasurers and other church leaders will find a valuable resource in the guide’s special section about important federal requirements for churches.

“Each year, we hear from so many pastors and other ministers about the help the Ministers’ Tax Guide is for them and their families as they navigate tax filing, either on their own or alongside their tax preparer,” said GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins. “It is a joy to hear from so many pastors who tell us how thankful they are for this guide and how much it helps them.”
