Zero Compensation Pastor

I am starting a new church, I am a disabled veteran receiving Social Security. I have informed the members that I will not take a salary, this has been recorded into our initial minutes and records. Will there still be tax implications for me?

tax implications

If you receive gifts of more than $600 in the year, or if you receive a housing allowance (which could be of benefit to you if you are a qualifying minister for the housing allowance that is) are the only two ways there could be tax implications for you. Oh, and a third possible way would be involving a travel allowance, or your travel expenses related to ministry travel expenses.
