Gifts from the Church Taxable?
Is money given by the church to the pastor for Christmas and for pastor appreciation included in W-2 Earnings?
It would be taxable.
If the gift was taken up as a love offering from the church as a whole and the monies were processed through the church then the church would be responsible for adding it to his reported income.
If church members gave the Pastor their gifts to him personally it would be up to the pastor to report it.
