No longer ordained form 4361

I filed form 4361 years ago, but as of 2016 I am still self-employed but am no longer an ordained minister. What do I do when I file? Do I simply begin paying self-employment/Social Security tax as before?

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
