Compensation Package with Prepaid Debit Card

Can you tell me if there are any stipulations to offering a prepaid debit card for an allotted amount of hospitality to a church employee as part of their compensation package?

Would they then would be responsible for maintaining receipts to offset this amount that was given to them, for any auditing?

Thank you for any help with this!

I also want to apologize for the spam response you initially received. I have deleted the comment and have banned that author but the same spammers from those "QB experts" keep using different email addresses =(
