Yes, my question is this. I am an elder in a church that helps with the support of a number of men who do not preach for us locally.
One of our men has requested that we designate the amount we support him as his housing allowance. No problem.
My question is do we then issue him a 1099?
According to what I have read in the Church and Clergy Tax guide, chapter 6 page 274 a 1099 is not necessary.
However, my treasurer, who is a diligent CPA, is asking for support from the tax code, IRS regulations or court rulings to support this. Can you help me?

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 =)
