Clergy Tax/ELCA Benefit Workshop 2021
It is time to mark your calendars for the annual Clergy Tax Law Short Course/ELCA Benefit Introduction on Saturday, February 13. The morning course will serve as a brief primer to the intricacies of clergy tax law. All M.Div. students who graduated in December 2020 or who will graduate in winter term, spring semester, summer term, or December 2021 are encouraged to attend. The morning session is not denomination-specific.
The afternoon session will introduce the benefit package offered for employees in the ELCA. The afternoon session would be appropriate for any M.Div. or M.A. student who will be seeking employment with an ELCA organization.
