Housing Allowance ?
(Roseland Virginia, US)
Our church has a parsonage. We pay our pastor a salary and have designed $9600 as housing allowance. The housing allowance is not added to the gross wages. I was told by a CPA of a former minister that the housing allowance should be subtracted from the amount of gross salary in box 1 on the W2. I can not find this in writing anywhere. Is that a correct statement?
