1099 or W2 for visiting clergy?

by Vicki
(Pembine, WI)

Our full time Pastor retired in July, we have been paying an Interim Pastor a monthly stipend to oversee business affairs but he rarely preaches. We have many visiting clergy in which we pay them per service and mileage. I will issue the Interim Pastor a W2, but I am unsure if those visiting clergy who have received more than $600 would receive a 1099 or a W2?

You state you give them income and reimburse for mileage:
just thought I'd mention to be sure to exclude the reimbursements.

Interim Pastors: Include on form 941 or not
by: Angie

Hi just wondered if interim pastors' wages have to be included on form 941 if they are receiving a 1099?
