I am a bivocational pastor of a small church. The church has grown to the point where they are able to start thinking about a small compensation package that would total about $1000 per month, consisting of a mix of housing allowance and medical expense reimbursements.
I have a very high deductible health insurance plan through the marketplace, and my understanding is that there are special rules for single employees with regards to medical reimbursements.
I would like to have a package that consists ONLY of housing allowance and medical reimbursement to avoid the church having to fill out a W-2. Is this feasible, and could someone advise the best way to go about this?
