Successful Businesses Count on CPAs


Pastors and Church Boards

I have a well-established CPA practice in Cooper City and Pembroke Pines, Florida. We are accounting experts. I have assisted Pastors, Church Board Members and Trustees with improved administration of their churches and other 501(c)(3) Organizations. Do you need guidance with collections, accounting, delegation, payroll reporting or other administrative duties? Do you need to know how to handle financial matters as related to guest speakers, needy families, child care workers and compensation limits and reporting requirements for the senior Pastor?

I was a active board member of a successful church in Broward County (Florida) for many, many years and served the Board of Trustees, and we were a hands-on active board without problems. We all knew the rules, followed the by-laws and adhered to strict government standards required of us.

Pastors, I would love to meet with you and would like to discuss some church matters that relate to finances and the laws and rules that churches must follow. These are critically important policies and some things that MUST be done. I have answers, and I have the knowledge that will help with your administration, the church finances and the way that you and your organization can be sure that church money and member's tithes are in compliance with the government's regulations.

There have been numerous IRS changes. The government has become more aggressive, within the past year, on how it handles and classifies churches and other 501(c)(3) organizations. It is important that churches comply and follow, so that nothing is done incorrectly and no blame can come to the church administration. (the most important issue is that we are all blameless as we hold ourselves out as Christians)

Please call my office, and we can get together and discuss a few things. No formalities, no pressures, nothing that is going to change the nature of your church or your ministry, just getting you into compliance with governing law.

I look forward to your call. This is going to be a good thing for you and for church.
