How to file taxes as a bi-vocational missionary on deputation
I am a missionary on deputation this last year raising support. We were in a dozen or so churches and every church gave us a love offering/honorarium in every church.
Almost all of these churches gave us offerings of less than $600 and we did not record what we received figuring we would receive a 1099. I have not received any 1099's or any other form from any church.
Also it would be good to add that from all of the trips and other expenses that I incurred this during these trips would probably exceed the amount that we received through offerings. My question is...
Should I even claim any of this income because my expenses are greater than the offerings received?
