Clergy E-file and "Clergy Income Statement" attached
We have used tax cut to do our taxes for several years this year it states that a "Clergy Income Statement" explaining housing allowance must be attached.
However, we do not file/use the 2106 (Unreimbursed Business Expenses) nor do we have we completed a 4361. We have a housing allowance that is included in box 14 on the W2 and is not subject to income tax but is included on our Schedule SE. Is this form necessary or is it a software glitch with tax cut?Answer
You are the third person today to ask this question and some are using Turbo Tax. I do not know why they are requiring a statement if you are not deducting any unreimbursed expenses off your self-employment earnings. See this post for some examples of such a statement
If I was you I would either call the IRS or call that 800 number TaxCut/H&R Block Software provides.
You may have to just mail it in if TaxCut will not allow you to e-file without that statement.Know the answer? Face the same situation? Please post your answer or comment by using the "comment" link below. Thank you!
