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.
