W-2 or 1099 ?

Most tax professionals will tell you unless the pastor has full control over the church...they should be considered an employee of the church and be issued a W-2 to report compensation.


My question is: What if the Pastor does have full control over the church? Where is instructions on this? What is the determining factor to file a 1099-Misc?
