CPAs and Ministers

BY PAUL E. DILLMAN

As a CPA who works with ministers in many denominations, I would like to comment on the excellent article, “ Tax Planning for Servants of God ” ( JofA , Oct.04, page 65).

I am always amazed about how little the ministers know—and even more so how little some tax professionals know—about this subject.

It has been a blessing to me over the years to receive thanks from some of the finest men and women in the world who are really giving to society from their hearts. I would encourage my fellow CPAs to ask their ministers how they can help them in this area. Many ministers are afraid to ask or think they cannot afford the services of a CPA. I offer my time as a ministry back to them at no charge and would encourage other CPAs to do the same. This is truly a chance to be of service and make a difference where it is needed and appreciated.
