church tax seminar

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.

Each year we offer tax seminars scheduled across Texas throughout January to help churches achieve this. The seminar fee is only $15 and includes lunch. New dates, locations and times for following year are published each fall.
