Pastor is ONLY paid housing allowance. No other income or salary is paid.

Pastor is ONLY paid housing allowance. Hence, w2 lists $18k in box 14. Question: How to complete w2? Form requires a non-zero number in at least one box. System will not allow me to file a w2 without entering a number in a box other than box 14.

I've considered just filing a w2 with $1.00 in box 1, $0.00 in all other fields, except the $18k in box 14 which is labeled Housing.

Any thoughts?

I use Quicken Online Payroll to pay each staff member including the one who only gets Housing Allowance. On the W2 he receives $1 on Salary Income and the total Hosing Allowance goes into Box #14 I believe, as Housing Allowance

I've used several software programs over the years, and I've run into this problem before, So far, every software I've used has allowed you to enter a zero (0). Just don't try to leave the box blank
