DOES IRS allow?
by: Anonymous in NC

The governing body of ANY church should and IS allowed to decide for the church on the question of gifts to members who volunteer their services. The only interest that IRS has in this would be the values of those gifts. If a church decided that some members had volunteered so much that their gift should be $600 dollars of value or more in one year, then IRS laws require a 1099 form report of that gift. Board members of churches or any organization should try to stay familiar with the tax laws for voluntary compliance of them--likewise for individuals.

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 =)
