DALLAS — The 2015 edition of GuideStone’s annual Tax Return Preparation and Federal Reporting Guide, Ministers’ Tax Guide for 2014 Returns is now available. In this helpful handbook, both active and retired ministers will find step-by-step instructions, sample forms and detailed help in understanding the latest tax laws. Additionally, church treasurers and other church leaders will find a valuable resource in the Guide’s special section about important federal requirements for churches.
GuideStone participants can receive the free Guide by visiting our website or can request a free printed copy by calling 1-888-98-GUIDE (1-888-984-8433).
The Guide was written again this year by Richard Hammar, a noted CPA, attorney and widely published author who specializes in legal and tax issues for ministers. Additionally, the material is edited by GuideStone’s Compliance staff to ensure that it addresses, in detail, the tax issues directly affecting Southern Baptist pastors.
“Each year, federal tax law can change, and ministers have come to trust in the Ministers’ Tax Guide as they prepare their taxes or work with their 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 navigate the unique ministerial tax laws. We are blessed to be able to help them with the important task of ensuring that their income tax returns are correct.”
