On line 3, enter the date you were ordained,
commissioned, or licensed as a minister of a
church; became a member of a religious order;
or began practice as a Christian Science
practitioner (do not file Form 4361 before this
Then, on line 5, enter the first 2 years you had self-employment earnings of $400 or more (but ONLY from services as a minister, priest, rabbi, etc.; member of a religious order, or
Christian Science practitioner) (example: 2008, 2009)

What if this is your first year self employed as minister. how can you fill in line five? Do you have to pay tax for two years, first?
