Clergy Mid Year Status Change ReMiX (from regular w2 employee to ordained minister)
Clergy status change... Does it retro or do I prorate?
Our worship minister was ordained mid year and prior to that, fica/mc taxes were withheld. He then received 4361 approval.
Should church issue 2 (two) w2s? One for pre-minister with fica/mc withholding and another for minister exempt status?
TurboTax does not like the fact that he is a minister but still has a small amount withheld in boxes 4 & 6. HELP PLeaSe!
It would be so much simpler if the ministerial self employment status could retro to beginning of tax year but I can't find anything to verify what the IRS says.
