Allocating Housing Allowance

by Marcella
(Amarillo, TX USA)

Our pastor passed away the first week of May 2016. He was projected to have an $18000 housing allowance that we would have deducted from his gross salary. Do I only give him credit for 4 months of the $18000 from his salary? 18000/2*4 $6000?

Do I have to input the pastor's housing allowance on the w2 if it's deducted from his salary gross pay for tax purposes?

Vickey's reply:
The housing allowance has to be deducted from gross salary (reported in Box 1) and reported (preferably) in Box 14 which is just an informational box for the employee.

You are Correct

I am so sorry for your loss...although his gain.

You are correct in your amount and allocation for his housing allowance.
