Pastor's compensation is not even enough for his rent. Should he get a 1099?

We're a small church and could not even pay our pastor enough for his apartment rental. The church's compensation is his only source of income. Should we issue him a 1099?

1099 requirement
by: Anonymous in NC

If you pay him $600 or more per year, then a 1099 is required. If he is employed by your church then he should get a W-2 form instead. If he qualifies for a housing allowance then that would reduce his taxable gross income reported on the w-2 and/or the 1099.
