This course has been specially designed to equip Christian ministers to be aware and informed about all the potential tax issues that they may face in leading a congregation of believers. Topics such as Federal, State, and Local tax exemptions are discussed as well as payroll tax issues, Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT) and other important taxation matters that affect churches.
This is a fundamental course that every minister leading a church should take.


Welcome to This Course!

I am Art Rhodes, a lawyer and presently serving as the President and CEO of the Church of God Benefits Board. I am teaching “The Church as a Taxpayer” course in hopes of making ministers aware of all the potential tax issues that they may face in leading a congregation of believers. Although you do not have to be a lawyer or a CPA to pastor a church, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of the financial and tax challenges a church may face. This course will hopefully give you that insight.
