Housing allowance paid in appliances?

by Keith Kenward
(Sterling Heights MI US)

A church buys its paid minister some new appliances for their home, and they are also paid a housing allowance.

Can the value be added to housing allowance paid and not salary on the w-2, if the appliance purchases were recognized by the church board and designated as housing allowance?

I see a problem in that the minister cannot show that they paid for the appliances.

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 =)
