2011 Clergy Compensation Worksheet

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010 (or TRUIRJCA of 2010) included provisions which reduced the Social Security Tax Rate and the Self-Employment Tax Rate by two percent for 2011. Therefore, lay staff will be paying only 4.2 percent Social Security Tax instead of 6.2 percent and clergy staff will only pay 10.4 percent self-employment tax in 2011 vs. the 12.4 percent rate in 2010.  As a result SSR reimbursements for the clergy will be reduced by two percent.
