Example of Pastors W-2


Example of Pastors W-2 Forms: As I stated on my "Ministers: Employee or Not" page, most of the time a pastor/minister is considered an employee of their church and should be issued a W-2 to report their compensation.

How to fill out a Minister’s W-2 Form

Example of Pastors W-2

Payroll is something you want to get right as it affects your employees and legal situation.

See a step by step payroll guide for more information on setting up a proper payroll for your Pastor and employees.

One of the most important factors to keep in mind while setting up a payroll for a church is that your minister's payroll is handled differently than your nonminister employees.

See this page on clergy tax to learn how to properly handle a minister's pay.

See this page for how to handle your nonminister employee payroll taxes.

See the example of a pastors W-2 below for tips on handling a pastor's pay, housing allowance, and even business expenses.

Example of Pastors W-2:

Pastor Smith has a salary of $25,000.

He is also received $9,000 for his housing allowance in addition to his salary.

(His housing allowance was properly set up with an adopted resolution before it was paid.)

Pastor Smith also has a non-accountable car allowance of $2,500. The church has set up an accountable reimbursement policy  and Pastor Smith has been paid $1500 for appropriate business expenses.

Pastor Smith has not requested any voluntary federal income tax withholding by the church. He makes quarterly estimated tax payments . The church gives him a social security tax allowance of $500 a month to help with his self-employment tax.

Example of pastor's W-2 instructions:

  1. Fill out the information boxes a, b, c, e, and f.
  2. Include his salary of $25,000, his unaccountable car allowance of $2,500, and the $6,000 social security tax allowance in Box 1$33,500.00Note that we did not include the tax-free amount of $1,500 (accountable reimbursements) It would not be reported anywhere on the W-2.
  3. Leave boxes: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 blank. Do not insert 0s.
  4. Put the housing allowance in Box 14:  Housing: 9000.00 [Optional...could also just include the amount of the allowance in a separate letter to the minister. (This separate letter should not be sent to the IRS and will not be included or attached to the minister's personal tax return.)]
  5. Complete boxes 16-20 according to your state’s requirements.
