Church withheld SS, Medicare and Local Tax on Pastor

by Kevin
(Cochranille, PA)

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?
