Sounds like someone skipped the wrong day of class!

I'm sorry that I can't give you specific answers to each of your questions. And you probably don't have time to order this book - but this book definitely has the answers you seek: Worth's Income Tax Guide for Ministers: 2009 Edition.

Other than that, I can only suggest that you visit your professor and ask for help - though if you procrastinated as long as it sounds, you might not get a warm reception!
