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--(Marketwire - 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,, 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.
