Does our pastor need a w2 or 1099 form ?
(Rogersville Al, United States)
We belong to a small community church. We do not have any other employees. Our pastor has been with our church for 17 years and receives a regular salary.
He isnt offered any benefits like insurance, or retirement. We do not withhold any taxes or social security money for him.
Should he be given a 1099 or a w2 form from the church treasurer?
Also if the church does supply him with a W2 form and he choses to file his taxes thru other means, can any penalities come back on the church?
