So, if a church solicits a love offering for the Pastor, even going so far as to have special envelopes made, and all monies flows through the church, 1. The amount is taxable to the Pastor, 2. The amount is deductible to the giver. Please let me know if this statement is true.
Is there an IRS ruling on this?

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 =)
