GuideStone Financial Resources has released its most popular annual publication, the 2023 Ministers’ Tax Guide for 2022 Returns, available now for GuideStone members at

The tax guide includes highlights for 2022 — including 2023 annual contribution limits, 2023 standard business mileage rates and key features from The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 — along with step-by-step filing instructions for ministers’ personal taxes and comprehensive examples and sample forms.

Other benefits

GuideStone ministry partners and church administrators also have access to the annual Federal Reporting Requirements for Churches. This publication is included in the full tax guide or as a separate electronic copy. Both are available to GuideStone members online at

The guide was once again written this year by Richard Hammar, a noted CPA, attorney and widely published author who specializes in legal and tax issues for ministers.

‘Commitment to enhance financial security’

“Our commitment is to enhance financial security and resilience for those who serve the Lord,” said Hance Dilbeck, GuideStone president.

“The tax guide is one area,” he noted, “where GuideStone seeks to make available the educational resources ministers and pastors need to take care of their financial well-being.”
