How to give someone small compensation for cleaning church?
We have a very small church congregation and we rent a storefront as our meeting place. Our pastor has a secular job from which he draws his income. We reimburse him for his mileage only. Thus, we currently issue no W-2's. Our pastor would like an elderly gentleman in our congregation to clean the building for $25/week. How can we compensate the gentleman for this? I am a volunteer bookkeeper and don't want to get involved in payroll for such a small amount of money. Can we give him $25/week and issue a 1099 instead?
