Turbo tax 5. Turbo tax   Ministers and Church Employees Table of Contents Alternative Limit for Church Employees Changes to Includible Compensation for Most Recent Year of ServiceChanges to Includible Compensation Changes to Years of Service Self-employed ministers and church employees who participate in 403(b) plans generally follow the same rules as other 403(b) plan participants. Turbo tax This means that if you are a self-employed minister or a church employee, your MAC generally is the lesser of: Your limit on annual additions, or Your limit on elective deferrals. Turbo tax For most ministers and church employees, the limit on annual additions is figured without any changes. Turbo tax This means that if you are a minister or church employee, your limit on annual additions generally is the lesser of: $51,000 for 2013 and $52,000 for 2014, or Your includible compensation for your most recent year of service. Turbo tax Although, in general, the same limit applies, church employees can choose an alternative limit and there are changes in how church employees, foreign missionaries, and self-employed ministers figure includible compensation for the most recent year of service. Turbo tax This chapter will explain the alternative limit and the changes. Turbo tax Who is a church employee?   A church employee is anyone who is an employee of a church or a convention or association of churches, including an employee of a tax-exempt organization controlled by or associated with a church or a convention or association of churches. Turbo tax Alternative Limit for Church Employees If you are a church employee, you can choose to use $10,000 a year as your limit on annual additions, even if your annual additions computed under the general rule is less. Turbo tax Total contributions over your lifetime under this choice cannot be more than $40,000. Turbo tax Changes to Includible Compensation for Most Recent Year of Service There are two types of changes in determining includible compensation for the most recent year of service. Turbo tax They are: Changes in how the includible compensation of foreign missionaries and self-employed ministers is figured, and A change to the years that are counted when figuring the most recent year of service for church employees and self-employed ministers. Turbo tax Changes to Includible Compensation Includible compensation is figured differently for foreign missionaries and self-employed ministers. Turbo tax Foreign missionary. Turbo tax   If you are a foreign missionary, your includible compensation includes foreign earned income that may otherwise be excludable from your gross income under section 911. Turbo tax   If you are a foreign missionary, and your adjusted gross income is $17,000 or less, contributions to your 403(b) account will not be treated as exceeding the limit on annual additions if the contributions are not in excess of $3,000. Turbo tax   You are a foreign missionary if you are either a layperson or a duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed minister of a church and you meet both of the following requirements. Turbo tax You are an employee of a church or convention or association of churches. Turbo tax You are performing services for the church outside the United States. Turbo tax Self-employed minister. Turbo tax   If you are a self-employed minister, you are treated as an employee of a tax-exempt organization that is a qualified employer. Turbo tax Your includible compensation is your net earnings from your ministry minus the contributions made to the retirement plan on your behalf and the deductible portion of your self-employment tax. Turbo tax Changes to Years of Service Generally, only service with the employer who maintains your 403(b) account can be counted when figuring your limit on annual additions. Turbo tax Church employees. Turbo tax   If you are a church employee, treat all of your years of service as an employee of a church or a convention or association of churches as years of service with one employer. Turbo tax Self-employed minister. Turbo tax   If you are a self-employed minister, your years of service include full and part years during which you were self-employed.

Many people sell items on the Internet through auctions, classified ads, news groups, and chat rooms.

Know your seller. If you don't, do some research.

  • Check how the auction works. Can you cancel a bid? Don't assume that the rules used by one auction site apply to another. Some sites offer step-by-step instructions that will take you through the bidding process.
  • Find out what protections you have. Does the site provide free insurance or guarantees for items that are not delivered or not what the seller claimed?
  • Follow the strategies used in any auction. Learn the value of the item you are bidding on. Establish your top price and stick to it.
  • Only bid on an item if you intend to buy. If you're the highest bidder, you have bought it. Auction companies often bar those who back out of a deal from future bidding.
  • If the seller can't accept payment by credit card, use an escrow service. Your money is held by a third-party until you get your purchase and approve release of your payment to the seller. There is a small fee, but the peace of mind is worth it.

Remember: if it seems too good to be true, it probably is
