GuideStone: 2022 Federal Reporting Requirements for Churches

Tax season is around the corner and that means that church reporting obligations are in full bloom.

In order to simplify the tax season, GuideStone – a financial service specific to Southern Baptist churches – is offering a free, downloadable resource. The 2022 Federal Reporting Requirements for Churches covers the basics of withholding and reporting employee income taxes and Social Security taxes as well as other key filing topics specific to ministry.  Some of these topics include: Maximizing tax benefits for your minister, housing/parsonage allowance, accountable reimbursements, complying with federal payroll tax reporting obligations and other important requirements for churches.

The 2022 Federal Reporting Requirements for Churches is written by Richard Hammar, CPA, attorney and specialist in legal and tax issues for ministers, and reviewed by GuideStone to ensure it addresses the tax issues directly affecting Southern Baptist churches.
