I've been told that there's a tax deduction for fulltime ministers. I wanted to know first of all what constitutes the status of a fulltime minister, how many hours dedicated to the ministry a year. Also what are the deductions for fulltime ministers. My wife dedicates more than 840 hours a year. Next year I plan to do the same. There are many expenses to our ministry (Clothes, Liturature, Gas, ext.) I wanted to know of any web sites that might clear up how to go about keeping records for the fulltime ministry status if we qualify. Thank You in advance.
