Please be advised to read "Ministers taxes" at the link to the left of this web site, especially concerning pastor's social security taxes.

Also, a home office deduction for the pastor is not impossible, but it becomes more difficult if a church office is provided for the pastor to perform most of his/her pastoral duties. This should be left to the pastor and his/her tax preparer to figure out.
