Free state tax efile Coverage of Members of the Clergy The services you perform in the exercise of your ministry, of the duties required by your religious order, or of your profession as a Christian Science practitioner or reader are covered by social security and Medicare under SECA. Free state tax efile Your earnings for these ministerial services (defined later) are subject to self-employment (SE) tax unless one of the following applies. Free state tax efile You are a member of a religious order who has taken a vow of poverty. Free state tax efile You ask the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for an exemption from SE tax for your services and the IRS approves your request. Free state tax efile See Exemption From Self-Employment (SE) Tax , later. Free state tax efile You are subject only to the social security laws of a foreign country under the provisions of a social security agreement between the United States and that country. Free state tax efile For more information, see Bilateral Social Security (Totalization) Agreements in Publication 54. Free state tax efile Your earnings that are not from ministerial services may be subject to social security tax under FICA or SECA according to the rules that apply to taxpayers in general. Free state tax efile See Ministerial Services , later. Free state tax efile Ministers If you are a minister of a church, your earnings for the services you perform in your capacity as a minister are subject to SE tax, even if you perform these services as an employee of that church. Free state tax efile However, you can request that the IRS grant you an exemption, as discussed under Exemption From Self-Employment (SE) Tax , later. Free state tax efile For the specific services covered, see Ministerial Services , later. Free state tax efile Ministers defined. Free state tax efile   Ministers are individuals who are duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed by a religious body constituting a church or church denomination. Free state tax efile Ministers have the authority to conduct religious worship, perform sacerdotal functions, and administer ordinances or sacraments according to the prescribed tenets and practices of that church or denomination. Free state tax efile   If a church or denomination ordains some ministers and licenses or commissions others, anyone licensed or commissioned must be able to perform substantially all the religious functions of an ordained minister to be treated as a minister for social security purposes. Free state tax efile Employment status for other tax purposes. Free state tax efile   Even though all of your income from performing ministerial services is subject to self-employment tax for social security tax purposes, you may be an employee for income tax or retirement plan purposes in performing those same services. Free state tax efile For income tax or retirement plan purposes, your income earned as an employee will be considered wages. Free state tax efile Common-law employee. Free state tax efile   Under common-law rules, you are considered either an employee or a self-employed person. Free state tax efile Generally, you are an employee if you perform services for someone who has the legal right to control both what you do and how you do it, even if you have considerable discretion and freedom of action. Free state tax efile For more information about the common-law rules, see Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide. Free state tax efile   If a congregation employs you and pays you a salary, you are generally a common-law employee and income from the exercise of your ministry is wages for income tax purposes. Free state tax efile However, amounts received directly from members of the congregation, such as fees for performing marriages, baptisms, or other personal services, are not wages; such amounts are self-employment income for both income tax purposes and social security tax purposes. Free state tax efile Example. Free state tax efile A church hires and pays you a salary to perform ministerial services subject to its control. Free state tax efile Under the common-law rules, you are an employee of the church while performing those services. Free state tax efile Form SS-8. Free state tax efile   If you are not certain whether you are an employee or a self-employed person, you can get a determination from the IRS by filing Form SS-8. Free state tax efile Members of Religious Orders If you are a member of a religious order who has not taken a vow of poverty, your earnings for ministerial services you perform as a member of the order are subject to SE tax. Free state tax efile See Ministerial Services , later. Free state tax efile However, you can request that the IRS grant you an exemption as discussed under Exemption From Self-Employment (SE) Tax , later. Free state tax efile Vow of poverty. Free state tax efile   If you are a member of a religious order and have taken a vow of poverty, you are already exempt from paying SE tax on your earnings for ministerial services you perform as an agent of your church or its agencies. Free state tax efile You do not need to request a separate exemption. Free state tax efile For income tax purposes, the earnings are tax free to you. Free state tax efile Your earnings are considered the income of the religious order. Free state tax efile Services covered under FICA at the election of the order. Free state tax efile   However, even if you have taken a vow of poverty, the services you perform for your church or its agencies may be covered under social security. Free state tax efile Your services are covered if your order, or an autonomous subdivision of the order, elects social security coverage for its current and future vow-of-poverty members. Free state tax efile   The order or subdivision elects coverage by filing Form SS-16. Free state tax efile The election may cover certain vow-of-poverty members for a retroactive period of up to 20 calendar quarters before the quarter in which it files the certificate. Free state tax efile If the election is made, the order or subdivision pays both the employer's and employee's share of the tax. Free state tax efile You do not pay any of the FICA tax. Free state tax efile Services performed outside the order. Free state tax efile   Even if you are a member of a religious order who has taken a vow of poverty and the order requires you to turn over amounts you earn, your earnings are subject to federal income tax and either SE tax or FICA tax (including estimated tax payments and/or withholding) if you: Are self-employed or an employee of an organization outside your religious community, and Perform work not required by, or done on behalf of, the order. Free state tax efile   In these cases, your income from self-employment or as an employee of that outside organization is taxable to you directly. Free state tax efile You may, however, be able to take a charitable deduction for the amount you turn over to the order. Free state tax efile See Publication 526, Charitable Contributions. Free state tax efile Rulings. Free state tax efile   Organizations and individuals may request rulings from the IRS on whether they are religious orders, or members of a religious order, respectively, for FICA tax, SE tax, and federal income tax withholding purposes. Free state tax efile To request a ruling, follow the procedures in Revenue Procedure 2014-1, 2014-1 I. Free state tax efile R. Free state tax efile B. Free state tax efile 1, available at www. Free state tax efile irs. Free state tax efile gov/irb/2014-1_IRB/ar05. Free state tax efile html. Free state tax efile Christian Science Practitioners and Readers Generally, your earnings from services you perform in your profession as a Christian Science practitioner or reader are subject to SE tax. Free state tax efile However, you can request an exemption as discussed under Exemption From Self-Employment (SE) Tax , later. Free state tax efile Practitioners. Free state tax efile   Christian Science practitioners are members in good standing of the Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, who practice healing according to the teachings of Christian Science. Free state tax efile State law specifically exempts Christian Science practitioners from licensing requirements. Free state tax efile   Some Christian Science practitioners also are Christian Science teachers or lecturers. Free state tax efile Income from teaching or lecturing is considered the same as income from their work as practitioners. Free state tax efile Readers. Free state tax efile   For tax purposes, Christian Science readers are considered the same as ordained, commissioned, or licensed ministers. Free state tax efile Coverage of Religious Workers (Church Employees) If you are a religious worker (a church employee) and are not in one of the classes already discussed, your wages are generally subject to social security and Medicare tax under FICA, not SECA. Free state tax efile Some exceptions are discussed next. Free state tax efile Election by Church To Exclude Its Employees From FICA Coverage Churches and qualified church-controlled organizations (church organizations) that are opposed for religious reasons to the payment of social security and Medicare taxes can elect to exclude their employees from FICA coverage. Free state tax efile If your employer makes this election, it does not pay the employer's portion of the FICA taxes or withhold from your pay your portion of the FICA taxes. Free state tax efile Instead, your wages are subject to SECA and you must pay SE tax on your wages if they exceed $108. Free state tax efile 28 during the tax year. Free state tax efile However, you can request an exemption from SE tax if you are a member of a recognized religious sect, as discussed below. Free state tax efile Churches and church organizations make this election by filing two copies of Form 8274. Free state tax efile For more information about making this election, see Form 8274. Free state tax efile Election by Certain Church Employees Who Are Opposed to Social Security and Medicare You may be able to choose to be exempt from social security and Medicare taxes, including the SE tax, if you are a member of a recognized religious sect or division and work for a church (or church-controlled nonprofit division) that does not pay the employer's part of the social security tax on wages. Free state tax efile This exemption does not apply to your service, if any, as a minister of a church or as a member of a religious order. Free state tax efile Make this choice by filing Form 4029. Free state tax efile See Requesting Exemption—Form 4029 , later, under Members of Recognized Religious Sects. Free state tax efile U. Free state tax efile S. Free state tax efile Citizens and Resident and Nonresident Aliens To be covered under the SE tax provisions (SECA), individuals generally must be citizens or resident aliens of the United States. Free state tax efile Nonresident aliens are not covered under SECA unless a social security agreement in effect between the United States and the foreign country determines that you are covered under the U. Free state tax efile S. Free state tax efile social security system. Free state tax efile To determine your alien status, see Publication 519, U. Free state tax efile S. Free state tax efile Tax Guide for Aliens. Free state tax efile Residents of Puerto Rico, the U. Free state tax efile S. Free state tax efile Virgin Islands, Guam, the CNMI, and American Samoa. Free state tax efile   If you are a resident of one of these U. Free state tax efile S. Free state tax efile possessions but not a U. Free state tax efile S. Free state tax efile citizen, for SE tax purposes you are treated the same as a citizen or resident alien of the United States. Free state tax efile For information on figuring the tax, see Self-Employment Tax: Figuring Net Earnings , later. Free state tax efile Ministerial Services Ministerial services, in general, are the services you perform in the exercise of your ministry, in the exercise of your duties as required by your religious order, or in the exercise of your profession as a Christian Science practitioner or reader. Free state tax efile Income you receive for performing ministerial services is subject to SE tax unless you have an exemption as explained later. Free state tax efile Even if you have an exemption, only the income you receive for performing ministerial services is exempt. Free state tax efile The exemption does not apply to any other income. Free state tax efile The following discussions provide more detailed information on ministerial services of ministers, members of a religious order, and Christian Science practitioners and readers. Free state tax efile Ministers Most services you perform as a minister, priest, rabbi, etc. Free state tax efile , are ministerial services. Free state tax efile These services include: Performing sacerdotal functions, Conducting religious worship, and Controlling, conducting, and maintaining religious organizations (including the religious boards, societies, and other integral agencies of such organizations) that are under the authority of a religious body that is a church or denomination. Free state tax efile You are considered to control, conduct, and maintain a religious organization if you direct, manage, or promote the organization's activities. Free state tax efile A religious organization is under the authority of a religious body that is a church or denomination if it is organized for and dedicated to carrying out the principles of a faith according to the requirements governing the creation of institutions of the faith. Free state tax efile Services for nonreligious organizations. Free state tax efile   Your services for a nonreligious organization are ministerial services if the services are assigned or designated by your church. Free state tax efile Assigned or designated services qualify even if they do not involve performing sacerdotal functions or conducting religious worship. Free state tax efile   If your services are not assigned or designated by your church, they are ministerial services only if they involve performing sacerdotal functions or conducting religious worship. Free state tax efile Services that are not part of your ministry. Free state tax efile   Income from services you perform as an employee that are not ministerial services is subject to social security and Medicare tax withholding under FICA (not SECA) under the rules that apply to employees in general. Free state tax efile The following are not ministerial services. Free state tax efile Services you perform for nonreligious organizations other than the services stated above. Free state tax efile Services you perform as a duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed minister of a church as an employee of the United States, the District of Columbia, a foreign government, or any of their political subdivisions. Free state tax efile These services are not ministerial services even if you are performing sacerdotal functions or conducting religious worship. Free state tax efile (For example, if you perform services as a chaplain in the Armed Forces of the United States, those services are not ministerial services. Free state tax efile ) Services you perform in a government-owned and operated hospital. Free state tax efile (These services are considered performed by a government employee, not by a minister as part of the ministry. Free state tax efile ) However, services that you perform at a church-related hospital or health and welfare institution, or a private nonprofit hospital, are considered to be part of the ministry and are considered ministerial services. Free state tax efile Books or articles. Free state tax efile   Writing religious books or articles is considered to be in the exercise of your ministry and is considered a ministerial service. Free state tax efile   This rule also applies to members of religious orders and to Christian Science practitioners and readers. Free state tax efile Members of Religious Orders Services you perform as a member of a religious order in the exercise of duties required by the order are ministerial services. Free state tax efile The services are considered ministerial because you perform them as an agent of the order. Free state tax efile For example, if the order directs you to perform services for another agency of the supervising church or an associated institution, you are considered to perform the services as an agent of the order. Free state tax efile However, if the order directs you to work outside the order, this employment will not be considered a duty required by the order unless: Your services are the kind that are ordinarily performed by members of the order, and Your services are part of the duties that must be exercised for, or on behalf of, the religious order as its agent. Free state tax efile Effect of employee status. Free state tax efile   Ordinarily, if your services are not considered directed or required of you by the order, you and the outside party for whom you work are considered employee and employer. Free state tax efile In this case, your earnings from the services are taxed under the rules that apply to employees in general, not under the rules for services provided as agent for the order. Free state tax efile This result is true even if you have taken a vow of poverty. Free state tax efile Example. Free state tax efile Pat Brown and Chris Green are members of a religious order and have taken vows of poverty. Free state tax efile They renounce all claims to their earnings. Free state tax efile The earnings belong to the order. Free state tax efile Pat is a licensed attorney. Free state tax efile The superiors of the order instructed her to get a job with a law firm. Free state tax efile Pat joined a law firm as an employee and, as she requested, the firm made the salary payments directly to the order. Free state tax efile Chris is a secretary. Free state tax efile The superiors of the order instructed him to accept a job with the business office of the church that supervises the order. Free state tax efile Chris took the job and gave all his earnings to the order. Free state tax efile Pat's services are not duties required by the order. Free state tax efile Her earnings are subject to social security and Medicare tax under FICA and to federal income tax. Free state tax efile Chris' services are duties required by the order. Free state tax efile He is acting as an agent of the order and not as an employee of a third party. Free state tax efile He does not include the earnings in gross income, and they are not subject to income tax withholding or to social security and Medicare tax under FICA or SECA. Free state tax efile Christian Science Practitioners and Readers Services you perform as a Christian Science practitioner or reader in the exercise of your profession are ministerial services. Free state tax efile Amounts you receive for performing these services are generally subject to SE tax. Free state tax efile You may request an exemption from SE tax, discussed next, which applies only to those services. Free state tax efile Exemption From Self-Employment (SE) Tax You can request an exemption from SE tax if you are a member of the clergy (minister, member of a religious order, or Christian Science practitioner or reader) or a member of a recognized religious sect. Free state tax efile Generally, members of religious orders who have taken a vow of poverty are already exempt from paying SE tax, as discussed earlier under Members of Religious Orders under Social Security Coverage. Free state tax efile They do not have to request the exemption. Free state tax efile Who cannot be exempt. Free state tax efile   You cannot be exempt from SE tax if you made one of the following elections to be covered under social security. Free state tax efile These elections are irrevocable. Free state tax efile You elected to be covered under social security by filing Form 2031, Revocation of Exemption From Self-Employment Tax for Use by Ministers, Members of Religious Orders, and Christian Science Practitioners, for your 1986, 1987, 2000, or 2001 tax year. Free state tax efile You elected before 1968 to be covered under social security for your ministerial services. Free state tax efile Requesting exemption. Free state tax efile    Table 2, earlier, briefly summarizes the procedure for requesting exemption from the SE tax. Free state tax efile More detailed explanations follow. Free state tax efile If you are a minister, member of a religious order, or Christian Science practitioner, an approved exemption only applies to earnings you receive for ministerial services, discussed earlier. Free state tax efile It does not apply to any other self-employment income. Free state tax efile Table 2. Free state tax efile The Self-Employment Tax Exemption Application and Approval Process   Who Can Apply Members of the Clergy Members of Recognized  Religious Sects How File Form 4361 File Form 4029 When File by the due date (including extensions) of your income tax return for the second tax year in which you had at least $400 of net earnings from self-employment (at least part from ministerial services) File anytime Approval If approved, you will receive an approved copy of Form 4361 If approved, you will receive an approved copy of Form 4029 Effective Date For all tax years after 1967 in which you have at least $400 of net earnings from self-employment For all tax years beginning with the first year you meet the eligibility requirements discussed later Members of the Clergy To claim the exemption from SE tax, you must meet all of the following conditions. Free state tax efile You file Form 4361, described below under Requesting Exemption—Form 4361 . Free state tax efile You are conscientiously opposed to public insurance because of your individual religious considerations (not because of your general conscience), or you are opposed because of the principles of your religious denomination. Free state tax efile You file for other than economic reasons. Free state tax efile You inform the ordaining, commissioning, or licensing body of your church or order that you are opposed to public insurance if you are a minister or a member of a religious order (other than a vow-of-poverty member). Free state tax efile This requirement does not apply to Christian Science practitioners or readers. Free state tax efile You establish that the organization that ordained, commissioned, or licensed you, or your religious order, is a tax-exempt religious organization. Free state tax efile You establish that the organization is a church or a convention or association of churches. Free state tax efile You did not make an election discussed earlier under Who cannot be exempt . Free state tax efile You sign and return the statement the IRS mails to you to certify that you are requesting an exemption based on the grounds listed on the statement. Free state tax efile Requesting Exemption—Form 4361 To request exemption from SE tax, file Form 4361 in triplicate (original and two copies) with the IRS. Free state tax efile The IRS will return to you a copy of the Form 4361 that you filed indicating whether it has approved your exemption. Free state tax efile If it is approved, keep the approved copy of Form 4361 in your permanent records. Free state tax efile When to file. Free state tax efile   File Form 4361 by the date your income tax return is due, including extensions, for the second tax year in which both of the following are true. Free state tax efile You have net earnings from self-employment of at least $400. Free state tax efile Any part of those net earnings was from ministerial services you performed as a: Minister, Member of a religious order, or Christian Science practitioner or reader. Free state tax efile The 2 years do not have to be consecutive tax years. Free state tax efile    The approval process can take some time, so you should file Form 4361 as soon as possible. Free state tax efile Example 1. Free state tax efile Rev. Free state tax efile Lawrence Jaeger, a clergyman ordained in 2013, has net self-employment earnings as a minister of $450 in 2013 and $500 in 2014. Free state tax efile He must file his application for exemption by the due date, including extensions, for his 2014 income tax return. Free state tax efile However, if Rev. Free state tax efile Jaeger does not receive IRS approval for an exemption by April 15, 2015, his SE tax for 2014 is due by that date. Free state tax efile Example 2. Free state tax efile Rev. Free state tax efile Louise Wolfe has only $300 in net self-employment earnings as a minister in 2013, but earned more than $400 in 2012 and expects to earn more than $400 in 2014. Free state tax efile She must file her application for exemption by the due date, including extensions, for her 2014 income tax return. Free state tax efile However, if she does not receive IRS approval for an exemption by April 15, 2015, her SE tax for 2014 is due by that date. Free state tax efile Example 3. Free state tax efile In 2011, Rev. Free state tax efile David Moss was ordained a minister and had $700 in net self-employment earnings as a minister. Free state tax efile In 2012, he received $1,000 as a minister, but his related expenses were over $1,000. Free state tax efile Therefore, he had no net self-employment earnings as a minister in 2012. Free state tax efile Also in 2012, he opened a book store and had $8,000 in net self-employment earnings from the store. Free state tax efile In 2013, he had net self-employment earnings of $1,500 as a minister and $10,000 net self-employment earnings from the store. Free state tax efile Rev. Free state tax efile Moss had net earnings from self-employment in 2011 and 2013 that were $400 or more each year, and part of the self-employment earnings in each of those years was for his services as a minister. Free state tax efile Thus, he must file his application for exemption by the due date, including extensions, for his 2013 income tax return. Free state tax efile Death of individual. Free state tax efile   The right to file an application for exemption ends with an individual's death. Free state tax efile A surviving spouse, executor, or administrator cannot file an exemption application for a deceased clergy member. Free state tax efile Effective date of exemption. Free state tax efile   An approved exemption is effective for all tax years after 1967 in which you have $400 or more of net earnings from self-employment and any part of those earnings is for services as a member of the clergy. Free state tax efile Once the exemption is approved, it is irrevocable. Free state tax efile Example. Free state tax efile Rev. Free state tax efile Trudy Austin, ordained in 2010, had $400 or more in net self-employment earnings as a minister in both 2010 and 2013. Free state tax efile She files an application for exemption on February 20, 2014. Free state tax efile If an exemption is granted, it is effective for 2010 and the following years. Free state tax efile Refunds of SE tax. Free state tax efile   If, after receiving an approved Form 4361, you find that you overpaid SE tax, you can file a claim for refund on Form 1040X. Free state tax efile Generally, for a refund, you must file Form 1040X within 3 years from the date you filed the return or within 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. Free state tax efile A return you filed, or tax you paid, before the due date is considered to have been filed or paid on the due date. Free state tax efile   If you file a claim after the 3-year period but within 2 years from the time you paid the tax, the credit or refund will not be more than the tax you paid within the 2 years immediately before you file the claim. Free state tax efile Members of Recognized Religious Sects If you are a member of a recognized religious sect, or a division of a recognized religious sect, you can apply for an exemption from payment of social security and Medicare taxes on both your self-employment income and the wages you earn from an employer who also has an exemption. Free state tax efile Exception. Free state tax efile   If you received social security benefits or payments, or anyone else received these benefits or payments based on your wages or self-employment income, you cannot apply. Free state tax efile However, if you pay your benefits back, you may be considered for exemption. Free state tax efile Contact your local Social Security Administration office to find out the amount you must pay back. Free state tax efile Eligibility requirements. Free state tax efile   To claim this exemption from SE tax, all the following requirements must be met. Free state tax efile You must file Form 4029, discussed later under Requesting Exemption—Form 4029 . Free state tax efile As a follower of the established teachings of the sect or division, you must be conscientiously opposed to accepting benefits of any private or public insurance that makes payments for death, disability, old age, retirement, or medical care, or provides services for medical care. Free state tax efile You must waive all rights to receive any social security payment or benefit and agree that no benefits or payments will be made to anyone else based on your wages and self-employment income. Free state tax efile The Commissioner of Social Security must determine that: Your sect or division has the established teachings as described in (2) above, It is the practice, and has been for a substantial period of time, for members of the sect or division to provide for their dependent members in a manner that is reasonable in view of the members' general level of living, and The sect or division has existed at all times since December 31, 1950. Free state tax efile Requesting Exemption—Form 4029 To request the exemption, file Form 4029 in triplicate (original and two copies) with the Social Security Administration at the address shown on the form. Free state tax efile The sect or division must complete part of the form. Free state tax efile The IRS will return to you a copy of the Form 4029 that you filed indicating whether it has approved your exemption. Free state tax efile If it is approved, keep the approved copy of Form 4029 in your permanent records. Free state tax efile When to file. Free state tax efile   You can file Form 4029 at any time. Free state tax efile   If you have an approved exemption from SE tax and for some reason that approved exemption ended, you must file a new Form 4029 if you subsequently meet the eligibility requirements, discussed earlier. Free state tax efile See Effective date of exemption next for information on when the newly approved exemption would become effective. Free state tax efile    If you have a previously approved exemption from SE tax and you change membership to another recognized religious sect, without any change to your eligibility requirements, then you do not need to file a new Form 4029. Free state tax efile Effective date of exemption. Free state tax efile   An approved exemption from SE tax generally is effective for all tax years beginning with the first year you meet the eligibility requirements discussed earlier. Free state tax efile (For example, if you meet the eligibility requirements in 2011, you file Form 4029 in 2012, and the IRS approves your exemption in 2013, your exemption is effective for tax year 2011 and all later years. Free state tax efile )   The exemption will end if you fail to meet the eligibility requirements or if the Commissioner of Social Security determines that the sect or division fails to meet them. Free state tax efile You must notify the IRS within 60 days if you are no longer a member of the religious group, or if you no longer follow the established teachings of this group. Free state tax efile The exemption will end for the tax year where you or your sect/division first fails to meet the eligibility requirements. Free state tax efile Refunds of SE tax paid.

Free state tax efile Self-Employment Tax: Figuring Net Earnings There are two methods for figuring your net earnings from self-employment as a member of the clergy or a religious worker. Free state tax efile Regular method. Free state tax efile Nonfarm optional method. Free state tax efile You may find Worksheets 1 through 4 helpful in figuring your net earnings from self-employment. Free state tax efile Blank worksheets are in the back of this publication, after the Comprehensive Example. Free state tax efile Regular Method Most people use the regular method. Free state tax efile Under this method, figure your net earnings from self-employment by totaling your gross income for services you performed as a minister, a member of a religious order who has not taken a vow of poverty, or a Christian Science practitioner or reader. Free state tax efile Then, subtract your allowable business deductions and multiply the difference by 92. Free state tax efile 35% (. Free state tax efile 9235). Free state tax efile Use Schedule SE (Form 1040) to figure your net earnings and SE tax. Free state tax efile If you are an employee of a church that elected to exclude you from FICA coverage, figure net earnings by multiplying your church wages shown on Form W-2 by 92. Free state tax efile 35% (. Free state tax efile 9235). Free state tax efile Do not reduce your wages by any business deductions when making this computation. Free state tax efile Use Schedule SE (Form 1040), Section B, to figure your net earnings and SE tax. Free state tax efile If you have an approved exemption, or you are automatically exempt, do not include the income or deductions from ministerial services in figuring your net earnings from self-employment. Free state tax efile Amounts included in gross income. Free state tax efile   To figure your net earnings from self-employment (on Schedule SE (Form 1040)), include in gross income: Salaries and fees for your ministerial services (discussed earlier), Offerings you receive for marriages, baptisms, funerals, masses, etc. Free state tax efile , The value of meals and lodging provided to you, your spouse, and your dependents for your employer's convenience, The fair rental value of a parsonage provided to you (including the cost of utilities that are furnished) and the rental allowance (including an amount for payment of utilities) paid to you, and Any amount a church pays toward your income tax or SE tax, other than withholding the amount from your salary. Free state tax efile This amount is also subject to income tax. Free state tax efile   For the income tax treatment of items (2) and (4), see Income Tax: Income and Expenses , later. Free state tax efile Example. Free state tax efile Pastor Roger Adams receives an annual salary of $39,000 as a full-time minister. Free state tax efile The $39,000 includes $5,000 that is designated as a rental allowance to pay utilities. Free state tax efile His church owns a parsonage that has a fair rental value of $12,000 per year. Free state tax efile The church gives Pastor Adams the use of the parsonage. Free state tax efile He is not exempt from SE tax. Free state tax efile He must include $51,000 ($39,000 plus $12,000) when figuring his net earnings for SE tax purposes. Free state tax efile The results would be the same if, instead of the use of the parsonage and receipt of the rental allowance for utilities, Pastor Adams had received an annual salary of $51,000 of which $17,000 ($5,000 plus $12,000) per year was designated as a rental allowance.

Free state tax efile Subtract any allowable expenses (including unreimbursed employee business expenses) from those wages, include the net amount on line 2 of Schedule SE (Form 1040), Section A or B, and attach an explanation. Free state tax efile Do not complete Schedule C or C-EZ (Form 1040).

Free state tax efile Employee reimbursement arrangements. Free state tax efile   If you received an advance, allowance, or reimbursement for your employee expenses, how you report this amount and your employee expenses depends on whether your employer reimbursed you under an accountable plan or a nonaccountable plan. Free state tax efile Ask your employer if you are not sure if it reimburses you using an accountable or a nonaccountable plan. Free state tax efile Accountable plans.

Free state tax efile You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses within a reasonable period of time. Free state tax efile You must return any excess reimbursement or allowance within a reasonable period of time. Free state tax efile   The reimbursement is not reported on your Form W-2. Free state tax efile Generally, if your expenses equal your reimbursement, you have no deduction. Free state tax efile If your expenses are more than your reimbursement, you can deduct your excess expenses for SE tax and income tax purposes. Free state tax efile Nonaccountable plan. Free state tax efile   A nonaccountable plan is a reimbursement arrangement that does not meet all three of the rules listed under Accountable plans above. Free state tax efile In addition, even if your employer has an accountable plan, the following payments will be treated as being paid under a nonaccountable plan. Free state tax efile Excess reimbursements you fail to return to your employer. Free state tax efile Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses related to your employer's business. Free state tax efile   Your employer will combine any reimbursement paid to you under a nonaccountable plan with your wages, salary, or other compensation and report the combined total in box 1 of your Form W-2. Free state tax efile Since reimbursements under a nonaccountable plan are included in your gross income, you can deduct your related expenses (for SE tax and income tax purposes) regardless of whether they are more than, less than, or equal to your reimbursement. Free state tax efile   For more information on accountable and nonaccountable plans, see Publication 463, Travel, Entertainment, Gift, and Car Expenses.

Free state tax efile ** Gross income means all income you received in the form of money, goods, property, and services that is not exempt from tax, including any income from sources outside the United States or from the sale of your main home (even if you can exclude part or all of it). Free state tax efile Do not include any social security benefits unless (a) you are married filing a separate return and you lived with your spouse at any time in 2013, or (b) one-half of your social security benefits plus your other gross income and any tax-exempt interest is more than $25,000 ($32,000 if married filing jointly). Free state tax efile If (a) or (b) applies, see the instructions for Form 1040, lines 20a and 20b, to figure the taxable part of social security benefits you must include in gross income. Free state tax efile Gross income includes gains, but not losses, reported on Form 8949 or Schedule D (Form 1040). Free state tax efile Gross income from a business means, for example, the amount on Schedule C (Form 1040), line 7, or Schedule F (Form 1040), line 9. Free state tax efile But, in figuring gross income, do not reduce your income by any losses, including any loss on Schedule C (Form 1040), line 7, or Schedule F (Form 1040), line 9. Free state tax efile *** If you did not live with your spouse at the end of 2013 (or on the date your spouse died) and your gross income was at least $3,900, you must file a return regardless of your age. Free state tax efile Additional requirements. Free state tax efile   Even if your income was less than the amount shown in Table 4, you must file an income tax return on Form 1040, and attach a completed Schedule SE (Form 1040), if:    You are not exempt from SE tax, and you have net earnings from self-employment (discussed earlier under Self-Employment Tax: Figuring Net Earnings ) of $400 or more in the tax year, You are exempt from SE tax on earnings from ministerial services and you have $400 or more of other net earnings subject to SE tax, or You had wages of $108. Free state tax efile 28 or more from an electing church or church-controlled organization (see Coverage of Religious Workers (Church Employees) , earlier, under Social Security Coverage). Free state tax efile Self-employment tax. Free state tax efile   If you are liable for SE tax, you must file Schedule SE (Form 1040) with your return. Free state tax efile   If you filed Form 4361 and did not receive approval from the IRS, you must pay SE tax on your ministerial earnings, as explained earlier. Free state tax efile You should report ministerial earnings and expenses from nonemployee ministerial services on Schedule C or C-EZ (Form 1040). Free state tax efile You should then carry the net amount over to line 2 of Schedule SE (Form 1040), Section A or B. Free state tax efile However, if you were a duly ordained minister who was an employee of a church and you must pay SE tax on the wages you earned for those services, do not report those wages on Schedule C or C-EZ (Form 1040). Free state tax efile Instead, report those wages less any allowable expenses (including any unreimbursed employee business expenses), on line 2 of Schedule SE (Form 1040), Section A or B, and attach an explanation. Free state tax efile Note. Free state tax efile For income tax purposes, the unreimbursed employee business expenses that you incurred as an employee of the church and subtracted from your wages on line 2 of Schedule SE (Form 1040) are allowed only as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040) if they exceed 2% of your adjusted gross income. Free state tax efile You cannot deduct these expenses on Schedule C or C-EZ (Form 1040) as a trade or business expense. Free state tax efile Exemption from SE tax. Free state tax efile   If you filed Form 4361 and received IRS approval not to be taxed on your ministerial earnings, and you do not have any other income subject to SE tax, do not file Schedule SE (Form 1040). Free state tax efile Instead, enter “Exempt—Form 4361” on the dotted line next to Form 1040, line 56. Free state tax efile However, if you had net earnings from another trade or business of $400 or more subject to SE tax, see line A at the top of Schedule SE (Form 1040), Section B. Free state tax efile    If you filed Form 4029 and received IRS approval not to be taxed on those earnings, and you do not have any other income subject to SE tax, do not file Schedule SE (Form 1040). Free state tax efile Instead, enter “Exempt—Form 4029” on the dotted line next to Form 1040, line 56. Free state tax efile More information. Free state tax efile   For more information on filing your return, including when and where to file it, see the Instructions for Form 1040. Free state tax efile Retirement Savings Arrangements Retirement savings arrangements are plans that offer you a tax-favored way to save for your retirement. Free state tax efile You generally can deduct your contributions to the plan. Free state tax efile Your contributions and the earnings on them are not taxed until they are distributed. Free state tax efile Retirement plans for the self-employed. Free state tax efile   To set up one of the following plans you must be self-employed. Free state tax efile SEP (simplified employee pension) plan. Free state tax efile SIMPLE (savings incentive match plan for employees) plan. Free state tax efile Qualified retirement plan (also called a Keogh or H. Free state tax efile R. Free state tax efile 10 plan). Free state tax efile   The common-law rules determine whether you are an employee or a self-employed person for purposes of setting up a retirement plan. Free state tax efile See Employment status for other tax purposes under Coverage of Members of the Clergy, earlier. Free state tax efile This result is true even if your compensation for ministerial services (defined earlier) is subject to SE tax. Free state tax efile   For example, if a congregation pays you a salary for performing ministerial services and you are subject to the congregation's control, you generally are a common-law employee. Free state tax efile You are not a self-employed person for purposes of setting up a retirement plan. Free state tax efile This result is true even if your salary is subject to SE tax. Free state tax efile   On the other hand, amounts received directly from members of the congregation, such as fees for performing marriages, baptisms, or other personal services that you report on Schedule C or C-EZ (Form 1040), are earnings from self-employment for all tax purposes. Free state tax efile   For more information on establishing a SEP, SIMPLE, or qualified retirement plan, see Publication 560, Retirement Plans for Small Business (SEP, SIMPLE, and Qualified Plans). Free state tax efile Individual retirement arrangements (IRAs). Free state tax efile   The traditional IRA and the Roth IRA are two individual retirement arrangements you can use to save money for your retirement. Free state tax efile Generally, your maximum contribution for 2013 to either of these plans (or to a combination of the two) is the smaller of your taxable compensation or $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older). Free state tax efile   However, your maximum contribution to a Roth IRA will be further reduced or eliminated if your adjusted gross income is above a certain amount. Free state tax efile You cannot deduct Roth IRA contributions, but if you satisfy certain requirements, all earnings in the Roth IRA are tax free and neither your nondeductible contributions nor any earnings on them are taxable when distributed. Free state tax efile   If you contribute to a traditional IRA, your contribution may be deductible. Free state tax efile However, your deduction may be reduced or eliminated if you or your spouse is covered by an employer retirement plan (including, but not limited to, a SEP, SIMPLE, or qualified retirement plan). Free state tax efile   For more information on IRAs, see Publication 590. Free state tax efile Tax-sheltered annuity plans. Free state tax efile   Church employees, members of religious orders, and duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed ministers working as ministers or chaplains can participate in tax-sheltered annuity (403(b)) plans.
