Create a W2 for a Youth Pastor whose only compensation is living in church parsonage
Hi, Our Financial Secretary died suddenly and I am trying to do the W2's forms for 2016.
I am not sure how to proceed with creating a W2 form for our youth pastor.
He is NOT an ordained minister. He receives no pay, his salary is living for free in the church apartment. He doesn't pay any utilities.
We are in Pennslyvania, the use of the personage is subject to state income tax.
When I create a W2 form,, I am enter "0.00" in Box 1 (Federal) and "10,800" in Box 16 state wages.
The Social Security Web page gives me an error message. That I must have an amount in boxes 1 to 7. I also tried just putting the amount in Box 14 (Other). Still getting error message!
I would appreciate any help!!
