Ministers’ Tax Guide

2024 Ministers’ Tax Guide for 2023 Returns

As a part of GuideStone’s mission to enhance the financial security and resilience for those who serve the Lord, we are excited to provide our ministry partners and members with resources to help answer common tax-related questions and issues for ministers.

Ministerial tax issues can be complicated.

We want to help make it easier!

Our 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. Additionally, church treasurers, administrators and other church leaders will find a valuable resource in the guide’s special section about important federal reporting requirements for churches at the end of the publication.
