Pastor coming to new church has acquired both health insurance and pays into a 403b through Guidestone as an individual.
Small church has no insurance or retirement plan.
Can the church and pastor agree that a portion of his salary be designated for payment to both plans and the church make the payments directly to Guidestone and those designated amounts not be taxable? Box 1 of W2 would not include those designated amounts but they would be reported in box 12 with "E" & "DD" codes.
