The Pastor’s Tax Man to Unveil a Housing Allowance Spreadsheet to Help Clergy Figure out What They Will Owe in 2012 Taxes

WELLINGTON, CO–Jan 2, 2013 – The New Year is upon us, and that can only mean one thing: 2012 taxes are soon due. Tax season is around the corner and The Pastor’s Tax Man wants to help you better understand what lies ahead.

The Northern-Colorado based tax service founded by couple Bill and Mishie Daknis in 2009 will post a Housing Allowance Spreadsheet on its business website, www.thepastorstaxman.com, to better assist members of the clergy in figuring out what they likely will owe the government in 2012 taxes for 2013.

“We’ve always wanted to implement something like this on our website,” Bill Daknis said. “It’s not going to be 100 percent accurate all the time, but we feel this will give clergy members a good indicator of how their previous year’s taxes might shape up.”

Bill and Mishie Daknis, who operate their family tax-service business out of Wellington, created The Pastor’s Tax Man with a goal to help the clergy avoid paying potentially higher taxes than they should be to the government. The first step to paying less clergy taxes is to download the Housing Allowance Spreadsheet.

The Pastor’s Tax Man, also known as Daknis Tax Service, prepares all federal and state returns for small businesses, families and individuals whose primary profession is in the clergy — no matter what religious affiliation. The business also provides tax service to military personnel and first-responders.

The due date to file 2012 taxes with the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) is April 15, 2013, but most Americans file on the last day and Bill Daknis urges potential and returning clients to be proactive in planning for the inevitable task of filing taxes.

The Pastor’s Tax Man’s current clientele is comprised of 100 loyal clients from 15 different states. Bill and Mishie eventually would like to expand their client base to approximately 500 clergy members.

Those interested in learning more about services The Pastor’s Tax Man provides should visit their business website. The site contains extensive information on a variety of topics through the site’s blog. There also is a frequently asked questions (FAQ) page and of course a page for contact information.

Daknis Tax Service for Ministers Prepares Clergy and Pastor’s Taxes, Partners With Page1 for Online Visibility

WELLINGTON, CO — Daknis Tax Service for Ministers (DTSM), also known as the Pastor’s Taxes Man, is a family-owned company that offers tax services to clergy and their families.

Pastor’s taxes can be complicated because of the dual tax status of ministers.¬†Clergy are in one status for Income taxes and in another status for Social Security taxes. A professional with years of experience is required to properly navigate the tax return process. DTSM offers these services.

In order to better inform members of the clergy of these services, DTSM has teamed up with Page1 Online Marketing to increase its presence in the online community. Page1 Online Marketing will achieve this through the use of search engine optimization (SEO), social media and several other forms of web marketing.

Why does DTSM think that online marketing will benefit its business?

According to Bill Daknis, DTSM’s Enrolled Agent and one of the area’s most qualified tax professionals, the use of online marketing is, “A way for a company to be seen by their target audience in a much more efficient manner.” He also adds that, “Online marketing is a very simple and affordable way of getting exposure for the company.”

If there’s one thing DTSM and its tax professionals care about, it’s affordability. Clients saved over $100 on average in 2012 when compared to competitors dealing with pastor’s taxes. Since clients are already paying the government so much in taxes, it’s DTSM’s view that customers shouldn’t be overpaying for tax services too.

DTSM has served ministers in 15 different states since its founding in 2009 and looks to become a leader in their industry. The company and its tax professionals also believe that their newly formed partnership with Page1 Online Marketing will only help to advance this goal and establish DTSM as “The Pastor’s Tax Man.” For more information about clergy and pastor’s taxes for any denomination, visit www.thepastorstaxman.com.
