Part time youth minister, W2 or 1099

by Wayne
(Rio vista, TX)

I am a part youth minister at a small congregation bringing home $833 per month. Obviously taxes are NOT removed from this amount, I receive no other benefits at all. No housing allowance, no insurance benefits, etc. it is what it is. My question is, would it be better to file a 1099 or W2 form? It seems that a 1099 would make more sense because I drive many miles for youth events, pay for food for myself and the youth out of my own pocket, etc. I need suggestions.

See the section that Vickey has supplied under "payroll / employee or not".

You are an employee. Further, it is not a matter of choice as the rules are pretty clear.
