I just read your article regarding the exemption of Housing Allowance from gross income.
I'm a bi-vocational minister at a local church who is compensated 100% through a housing allowance.
Do I need to opt out of Self-Employment Tax in order to NOT report this allowance (line 14) of the W2?

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 =)
