I am a pastor and my church withheld Federal, SS, medicare, and Local taxes.
I believe they sent payments in for these areas. These withholdings are reported on my W-2 but a parsonage rental value is not.
I just started at this church in July and asked about it and it seems like this is how they always did it.
What do I do when filling out my taxes?

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 =)
