Rev Ed Bailey




We are getting ready for the New Year! Are YOU?

There have been some changes in the tax laws next year and we want you to know how this may affect you.


The United Methodist Stewardship Foundation is excited and honored to bring back our Clergy Tax Facilitator, Rev. Ed Bailey. He is the Executive Director of the United Methodist Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and has a special mission to help his fellow clergy. We are grateful he is willing to share his expertise with this new, updated and ABBREVIATED presentation.

He is an ordained elder with twenty years of pastoral experience who has also served as his conference's Pensions and Benefits vice-chair.

Topics Include

  • Defining the Dual-Status Tax Classification of Ministers

  • Listing the new tax law updates and how these may impact you

  • Discussing Exemptions and Deductions

At the end of this two-hour seminar you have a better understanding of the unique issues you face as a United Methodist Clergy Person. What is more, you will have some take away tools to share. 

Invite your church treasurer or financial secretary to take this webinar with you so that the right forms and documentation can be submitted to help you with your tax preparation.
