Form 941 and What is Reported on W-2

by Katrina
(Corpus Christi, Texas)

Our church reports income tax on Pastor's Gross Salary quarterly on the 941.

When the W-2 is completed, $0 is entered for Box 2, Federal Income Tax. The Pastor told the church that he will never have to pay income tax because he was a family of 9.

So, from the beginning of his employment, the church has paid income taxes quarterly, but reports none on W-2. Is this a common practice?

Everything I read, and I have read a lot, line 3 on the 941 and box 2 on w-2 should match.

Thank you.

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 =)
