Housing allowance and 1099
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?
