Payroll for a church can be a challenging venture. Without expertise in this area, many churches encounter penalties for late or incorrect payroll filings, or mis-filed W-2 / 1099 forms.
Church & Clergy Taxes
Churches (or para-church ministries) may be considered tax exempt —as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization —but that exemption only pertains to certain taxable events.
In 1994 with the assistance of her current employer, a tax and estate attorney, ACTS III, a tax and accounting home-based business, began offering services in Accounting, Consulting and Taxes. Although the services focused on church and clergy tax law, the business also served small family-owned businesses that faced accounting needs beyond their budget constraints.

“For someone with little knowledge of accounting, I found myself in the position of church treasurer. I knew that I needed serious help! Through a great deal of research, I decided on Power Church, which has been one of the best decisions for me, and for our church, that I could possibly have made. Mary is patient, kind, and truly has her client’s best interest at heart. When something doesn’t “click”, she will always take time to explain over and over until you understand, always with kindness….”

It’s not an overnight process if you have not entered anything in Power Church. It has been some months, however, Mary has hung in there for us if we need her…..Churches if you are looking for someone to get you on track with Power Church, Mary is the one…”
