Thanks for starting the article on clergy taxation. That is great!

I noticed that you cite a court case in your article. I wasn't sure if you knew that you can make the text a hyper link by using the following formatting. You can click on the edit tab of this page to see what it looks like. Warren v. Commissioner, 114 T.C. 23 (2000)

Thanks again for the article!

My name is Al. I understand the importance of searching for phrases. I will continue to research this to find a solution. For now, I can direct you to the following link,, for additional information and hints on searching. The best way to contact the Tax Almanac Team is to email your questions to If you have a question for me directly, you can put "Attention Al" in the subject or main letter body. Thanks for your comments. Al --Alowrie 15:07, 23 May 2005 (CDT)

Hi Gregg. Please use user talk pages when leaving messages for users as opposed to editing their personal user page. It's considered better form, and they'll get a banner at the top that tells them they have waiting messages. Thanks for all of your comments and contributions. It's great to see someone really get involved. See you around! Jwolfe 11:15, 23 May 2005 (CDT)


I've replied to your comments & questions on the Requested Topics page.

Link for new article


This link might be of use to you: Sec. 107. Rental value of parsonages. You can keep the same link but change the wording that is displayed like this: housing allowance.

I found the following additional links by searching for "parsonages":

Searches for other terms such as "ministers" should also bring up other references. These can be used to add links in your article, but could also be used to help you research the article.

Ask a new question code


I noticed on your new page's talk page that you have blank sections where people can add in new questions. An alternate way to do this would be to do it like the Ask or Answer a Tax Question page. Simply add the following to your page and when selected, a new section will be added to the bottom of the page.

<div style="margin: 0 2em; border: 1px solid #ffc9c9; color: #000; background-color: #fff3f3; padding: 3px; text-align: center"> '''[{{SERVER}}{{localurl:Talk:Minister / Clergy Taxation|action=edit&section=new}} Ask a new question by clicking here]''' </div>

Thanks for all of your hard work - it's looking great!


Mr. Gillaspy:

Here are some links that I thought you might want to include:

I made some changes to the Minister / Clergy Taxation page in preparation for making it a featured article. Great article!

Hi Gregg:

In response to your question on the TaxAlmanac Feedback page, you can add a copyright symbol © by entering "&copy;" on any page. Note that you need to have the leading ampersand and the trailing semi-colon for it to work properly. This functionality isn't wiki-specific - this is a feature of HTML. Let me know if you have any problems with it.

Added to your contribution

I wanted to say thank you for adding the article titled Minister / Clergy Taxation. This was helpful to me. I also added some additional content to the article, and included some additional issues related to ministers. I have a background working with ministers as a church treasurer. It was my job to make sure we did the right thing for our pastor.

I also found another article titled Minister's Housing Allowance on Tax Almanac. I don't think this article contains anything of additional value from the one you started. I would suggest that this one be removed from the site (or perhaps forwarded to the main Minister / Clergy Taxation article). But I wanted to ask your opinion.

Would you mind looking over the changes I made to your article, and see if there is anything you would like to add? Of course, if I missed something (or didn't include a reference) then you can feel free to change it.

Thanks again for posting this. It is helpful. --Mrainwater 19:59, 6 Aug 2005 (CDT)

Message to Janeen


I noticed that you left a message to the user Janeen on her user page. Messages to users should be placed on their discussion pages - that way when they log in they'll be notifed that a message has been left for them. If you add something to their user page, they will not be notified. I've noticed that you're not the only person to be confused by this - many others have as well. I'm thinking about ways that we could make this more intuitive to everyone, so if you have any thoughts, please let me know. I'm going to go add the standard headers to Janeen's user and discussion pages, and will move your comments to her talk page so she'll be sure to see them.

Lacerte Newsletter


They're referring to the Lacerte News - Volume 22 newsletter which was sent on Monday to (I believe) all Lacerte customers who have not opted out of such communications.

Word and Excel Files


Help me understand what you're wanting to do here. Are you wanting to upload the content of Word and Excel files to appear on an article page, or are you wanting to actually store such files on the site for others to access and download?


Tim Tdoyle 22:31, 30 Aug 2005 (CDT)

To upload an actual Word file for others to be able to look at it. It has certain formatting which wouldn't carry over if I simply copied and pasted from it onto an article here at TaxAlmanac.--Gregg Gillaspy, CPA, CFP 05:39, 31 Aug 2005 (CDT)

Hi Gregg - I'm an ex-Price Waterhouse accountant. I left Price Waterhouse in 1987. I am now a sole practitioner with 3 bookkeeper/clerical employees that does 450+ tax returns. I became a CPA in 1987 and a CFP in 1994. I'm coming up for renewal on the CFP and considering not renewing. I don't give investment advice and have never really marketed the CFP designation to my clients. I'm 48 and not looking to grow my practice at this point.

Do you feel being a CFP is a significant part of the success in your practice?


Definitely, it really only costs about $300 more a year for dues and all the CPE for the CPA license applies so there is not much more effort. I definitely market the fact that I am certified in both professions. If you were 68 I would consider dropping it but not at 48.



Good to see you again Gregg - hope all is well with you!
