Clergy Taxes and the New Tax Law


Two resources may be of help to you and those with whom you work regarding the new federal tax legislation. There are minimal changes that will impact churches and clergy specifically.

An article that features a discussion with three tax law experts who work with churches and clergy is “The GOP Tax Bill Just Passed. Here’s What Church Leaders Need to Know.”

In addition, the Lewis Center has a free video on clergy taxes in its Clergy Personal Finance Resources collection of video and print resources. You can find the tax video in the “Compensation and Taxes” unit.
