Nursery worker taxes

We have a nusery worker on Sundays for an average of 2-2 1/2 hrs. We pay $25 each Sunday . Do we need to do a 1099 at the end of the year?

Most likely a W-2 and withhold taxes, but review this to be sure: http://www.flumc.org/mp/pdf/employee_or_independent_contractor.pdf

If the worker was paid in total over $600, yes a 1099-MISC should be given to the worker and the IRS.

Be safe - use a payroll
by: Bill OConnell

A couple of years ago IRS gave some guidance to their auditors on exactly this issue. The auditors were instructed to look for borderline staff when doing payroll audits. They particularly suggested looking at the Music Director and janitor.

Churches are well advised to take the safe approach and put those who are paid regularly on a payroll.

Call us with any questions.
