Rendering to Caesar what belongs to Caesar can take time and energy.

Being in compliance with state and local requirements is often overlooked.  As much as possible, the EFCA Southeast is here to help you navigate things like 501(c)3 issues, immigration, governmental paperwork and the like.

Two Books Every Church Should Own and a Website to Utilize

Churches and pastors need sound, easy to understand, inexpensive advice about everything from the latest changes in tax law to the right way to handle charitable gifts. We recommend two guides by Dan Busby.

The Church & Nonprofit Tax & Financial Guide, by Dan Busby, CPA
Minister’s Tax & Financial Guide, by Dan Busby, CPA

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) has excellent FREE eBooks on topics such as 10 Fundamentals of Clergy Tax, 10 Fundamentals of Clergy Social Security and 10 Fundamentals of Clergy Housing Exclusion. These eBooks are also in Spanish. You need to sign up to download the books but it is worth it. ECFA also has other books available for a modest price that give more detail to the topics church, church staff and church leadership need to know about finances and taxes. EFCA is a member denomination of ECFA.

You can call Xochitl Cachon at (800) 995-5360 for help, encouragement and further resources.
