Churches and ministers should be aware of the following deadlines.

· Churches hiring their first nonminister employee between January 1 and March 31, 2014 may exempt themselves from the employer's share of FICA (Social Security) taxes by filing Form 8274 by this date. Nonminister employees are thereafter treated as self-employed for Social Security purposes. The exemption is only available to churches that are opposed on the basis of religious principles to paying the employer's share of FICA taxes.
