ch Business Administration
Through Business Conferences and Seminars, the SBTC brings experts in the fields of insurance, tax, and law to your area for training and dialog. Churches need to handle God's money in a safe way beyond reproach. Recognizing the potential pitfalls and staying up to date on the latest changes in laws and key issues is imperative in helping a church stay focused on ministry. These Tax Seminars are meant to inform and educate church leaders and administrators about church and pastoral tax laws as well as any new or revised tax law and procedures for the upcoming year.
There are eight tax seminars scheduled across Texas to help churches do this. The seminar fee is $10 and includes lunch. Join us at any of these remaining locations!
