One unique aspect of the tax code is that although ministers are frequently considered employees their income is subject to the self-employment tax. This aspect frequently catches new ministers by surprise.

The book answers each of the following questions:

  • What is ministers self-employment tax?
  • Can a minister opt out of social security?
  • Should a minister make quarterly estimated tax payments?
  • Can the church withhold income tax for the minister?
  • Can the church pay for or reimburse a minister's self employment tax?
