Does a Church Need to Keep records on what the pastor purchased with his housing allowance?
Our church has recently asked us for an itemized list of what we spend our housing allowance on. The reasoning is they may need this in case they are audited. I was under the impression that the pastors are required to prove what the housing allowance was spent on. Can the church legally ask us to share such personal information? The housing allowance that is given is $7500 is this considered too much so that they may question how it is spent? Thank you for your time.
