Health Savings -- Insurance Premiums
by: MarcusNTexas

We pay the monthly health insurance premiums (MediShare) for our pastor and his wife and up until now have never shown it as income. I assume that is still legal since many employers pay the cost of insurance premiums for their employees without the employee being taxed on that benefit. I don't know if there is a difference for payments into a health savings account on behalf of the pastor.
