Mostly they've cracked down on what constitutes a church for tax purposes, and most of the tax breaks are available to the church itself, not the clergy as individuals.

There are still a lot of special tax breaks available to clergy, mind you -- I believe they're the only people allowed to opt out of Social Security payroll taxes, although if they do so they aren't eligible for benefits either.
