Clergy Taxation

Clergy Tax Preparation and Financial Planning

Ministers and religious professionals are taxed unlike any other individual. Varn, Render & Co., CPAs, LLC., understands the complexities of clergy tax laws and our staff has been offering clergy tax preparation and financial planning for more than 20 years. Our goal is to provide you practical, easy to understand strategies to help you maximize your potential benefits. Our one-on-one tax planning meetings allow us to work with clients to optimally structure their compensation packages to minimize income and self employment taxes. As a result of these individualized meetings, many clients are often pleasantly surprised to see how much of their hard earned money can be saved just by utilizing the benefits afforded to them. Just as we can provide one-on-one consultation, we can also provide workshops and seminars on a local or denominational level.

We understand the unique tax laws for churches and clergy, and work diligently to alleviate as much of the accounting, reporting, and payroll burdens as possible from your committees and staff so you can concentrate on the areas that are most important to your ministry. 

Remember, no matter your location, we can help you meet your clergy tax preparation and advise on payroll needs. With clients throughout the Southeast and beyond we have the capability to work with you.
