Housing allowance for a home and a parsonage

We own a home where we lived when my husband was at our former church. He was moved to another town to a church with a parsonage. Spouse is at the former home during work week and we will retire to that home. Can the allowance be used for both homes?

You would be better off by following the undisputed law and claim the housing allowance on only one home.

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 =)
