Housing Allowance Reporting
by: Vickey

I am assuming you paid him $21,250.00 in "wages" AND $24,000.00 in housing allowance payments.

If so the $21,250.00 will be reported in Box 1 of his w-2 and the $24,000.00 in Box 14.

no salary

I know this is old, but thought I'd check on it anyways; wouldn't box 14 just be 21,250 or the total 24,000, and box 1 be 0, given it all fell within the housing allowance — thus no "real salary" was made.

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 =)
