All compensation we pay our Pastor is for Housing Allowance. This amount goes in Box 14 but does it also need to be listed in Box 1?

ALL for Housing Allowance. . .

If this is the case, then a W-2 is not required. Just send the pastor a needed letter confirming the approved housing allowance for his/her records.

What about withholding?
by: Anonymous

If there was withholding of federal income tax, can the W-2 show $0 in Box 1 and the withholding in Box 2?

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 =)
