Correct way to reimburse pastor

by Terrie
(Jackson, TN)

Our pastor is paid 43,000 a year base pay.

Each month he has our secretary withhold 1,000 which he then turns in business receipts for and gets a check for the difference of the 1,000 minus his reimbursements.

Is this the correct way?

We do not have budgeted line items for pastor mileage, phones, literature and so forth

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 =)
