Housing Allowence When Switching Ministry Jobs Mid-Year

by John Davis
(Owensboro, KY)

I am an ordained minister who currently receives housing allowance at my job. I will be transitioning to another ministry job mid year.

How does housing allowance work when you switch jobs in the middle of a calendar year?

Also, we are buying a new house as well. I know ministers can claim a down payment on a house for housing allowance, but I don't want to claim too much because there are only a few months until the end of the year after I switch jobs.
