Social Security Taxes - When to Pay?

When do you pay Social security taxes? Is it at the end of the year, or do you have to pay monthly/quarterly as a full-time minister/pastor?

That depends on your income.

See this page for help figuring how much self-employment tax you owe so far.

Usually you will need to make quarterly estimated tax payments to avoid paying a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax.

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 =)
