Do you include payments to the minister for reimbursable expenses i.e. airfare, hotel etc. if it's paid directly to the minister rather than the airline or hotel in addition to the monies received for their services?

It depends on so many things!

What to Include on a Traveling Minister's 1099

Yes. Everything paid directly to him should go on a 1099. He can then deduct the eligible business expenses off his personal tax return.

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 =)
