Clergy's Housing Allowance on 1099-misc
I have a SELF-EMPLOYED minister for whom I am completing a 1099-misc.
Where do I enter the amount for his housing allowance?
And where do I enter the amount the church has paid for his health benefits?
And I assume his other compensation ("salary") goes in Box 7, correct?
If he is self-employed and not considered an employee then he is not eligible for health benefits. See this page. So you would include the health benefits in line 7 with his salary.
Then you would report his housing allowance in a church letterhead statement sent only to the pastor.
