General Instructions


Purpose of Form

Use Form 2031 to revoke your exemption from self-employment tax if you are a minister, member of a religious order not under a vow of poverty, or Christian Science practitioner. You must be currently exempt from

self-employment tax because you previously filed Form 4361, Application for Exemption From Self-Employment Tax for Use by Ministers, Members of Religious Orders and Christian Science Practitioners, and received IRS approval for exemption. If you revoke your exemption, you will be liable for

self-employment tax, and social security and Medicare coverage will apply to

your earnings as a minister, member of a religious order, or Christian Science practitioner.

When To File

File Form 2031 no later than the due date (including extensions) of your Federal income tax return for your second tax year beginning after 1999. In most cases, this means you must file Form 2031 by April 15, 2002.

Effective Date

You can make the revocation effective for either your first or second tax year beginning after 1999. In most cases, this will be either your 2000 or 2001 tax year. Indicate your choice on line 5. You will be liable for any additional

self-employment tax for the tax year for which the election is effective.
