1099-misc income as housing allowance?

Our church gives us help with our rent, but issued a form 1099-misc for this income. My husband is a licensed lay minister in the church. Can we still count this as a housing allowance?

It is best to seek out a CPA who is a Christian and current with the IRS code.
They are better able to handle this question.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
