Is housing allowance paid to the pastor included in the 1099 he receives. He does not get a salary for a w-2.
by Kathy Butler
We are currently giving our pastor what we call love gifts out of the church general fund. He does not get paid a salary. In addition to the love gifts through out the year, he does receive a housing allowance weekly.
I know that I will be giving him a 1099 for all the love gifts and estimated tax payments that have been paid in for him. My question is do I also include the total amount given in housing allowances on the 1099? If not, could I just print out an itemized statement of the weekly housing allowance gifts and give to him for him to take to his tax preparer?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.Know the answer? Face the same situation? Please post your answer or comment by using the "comment" link below. Thank you!
