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.

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 =)
